That's the weird thing.  It isn't there.  The only place I find it is
in the original src directory.  It did get made, but never got copied
to ANY destination, it appears.  I'll just link out from there--not a
problem.  I'm no expert on makefiles, but I guess I can look through
there to see if there is anything funny.
