Are the 3.1RC4 installation issues described by Louis Guillaume (quoted
below) fixed already?


 ... 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).
