We know what's missing... we also know it works anyway. That's not the
issue... the issue is that "release" code does not build properly on
Sorcerer (the distro) which is 100% source based. Sorcerer's package
management system downloads the source from the original URL and builds
it in situ. The system barfs on cipe (a wonderful program which we all
want) because of s stupid missing file which would take the author 30
seconds to put into the release! :-)
Fine day for friends. So-so day for you.
