Are the 3.1RC4 installation issues described by Louis Guillaume (quoted

... Listed as non-critical, but could be a real stumbling-block for
someone trying to do this the first time. Fixing it is, unfortunately,
beyond my current abilities.
But that's not the real trouble, I know the workaround for this: Either
move or link destdir.i386 into obj/.
The real trouble comes from postinstall. I didn't carefully read the
output of =03heck' before running =06ix' (my fault).
Several libraries are getting flagged as obsolete, and it breaks the
system completely. I had to recover by booting from another disk,
reinstalling binary sets and crossing my fingers that it was a
postinstall issue (lucky for me it was).
