You do not want to know how long it took me to find that the first time
it bit me! :-)  In my case it was because I was building in a chrooted
tree, and I had neither a fully-set-up /dev/std* and /dev/fd/ nor an
fdesc mounted on the chroot area's /dev.  But the symptom is so very
distinctive that the second and later times it was but an irritation.)

No problem.  Glad I could save you some headaches.
