Dear All,

Once upon a time, I could cd to /usr/src/whatever/foo and do a make install
there.  This was nice because it allowed me to update single binaries
without doing a full build (useful on small machines).

I just installed a new kernel on a router and noticed that ipf no longer
works (I'm hoping it's just the version difference).  I grabbed the sources,
but couldn't build the ipf binary in the old way.

Is there a way to update a few binaries only or do I have to run
and wait for a week?
