ah.  i missed that.  but i don't think it's non-intuitive.  you're
installing the new mk.* files, and make is a very essential part of
the toolchain.

i made a brand new config file for current that i intended to use in
"production" once the migration was finished.  it might have started
as a copy of the generic config, but it was changed heavily.  the
generic file usually has all the compat stuff in it though, so maybe
something which needs to be compat'ed was missed?
