I tried to make install onto a clean disk, with a source tree from
1999-08-13, on a SPARC IPX.  (First I did a "make build", to make sure
all the executables were built and in place.)  But when I did the

	make DESTDIR=/mnt install

(/mnt being a freshly newfsed filesystem), I got two errors:

	install ===> lib/libbz2
	ls: /mnt/usr/lib/lib*.so.*.*: No such file or directory
	[...apparently benign - rest of libbz2 install looks fine...]

	install ===> lib/libedit
	[...normal-looking goop...]
	/mnt/usr/share/man/cat3/history_end.0 -> /mnt/usr/share/man/cat3/editline.0
	/mnt/usr/share/man/cat3/history.0 -> /mnt/usr/share/man/cat3/editline.0
	/mnt/usr/include/history.h -> /mnt/usr/include/readline.h
	ln: /mnt/usr/include/readline.h: No such file or directory
	*** Error code 1
	[...the usual nested makes doing the "Stop." thing...]

Pilot error?  Bug?  Fixed in -current?  It's taken me a long time to
bring it up to this source tree; I'm hesitant to try to resync with
-current without some assurance it'll cure the problem.
