Or I could fix it in CVS myself, unless some %$&@ has revoked my commit

In which case, the "emc2 Team" needs to ensure the install target is safe on 
ALL systems before making a release tarball - Or make the default install 
tree /dev/null

The emc2.deb will also break Ubuntu installs, may be not tomorrow, or next 
week, but before too long, it will break. Nothing major to start with, just a 
few files will get trashed, maybe a conflict or two after an update. With any 
luck, the --fix-broken flag with apt-get will resolve the problems..

So, with a "make install" not recommended, a borked set of rules, and a number 
of as yet, unresolved bugs, I guess we won't be seeing an emc2.deb for BDI-4 
any time soon.
