   Excellent.  Thank you.  I had been fixing that by chmod -x'ing  
those script files, but not using install -s would work too, as long  
as you don't then stop stripping other things.  :-)  Thanks for  
getting that in in the "right" way.

   Sadly, no.  I just modified it because it needed to be modified.   
The patch pre-existed, but wouldn't apply without my change.  I  
decided against trying to figure out whether it was even needed,  
because I assumed someone else may've had a reason I wasn't aware of  
for it.  I guess I found that what it was looking for may not've been  
in config.status anymore.  I may well have been wrong.  Sadly, I made  
this change to [one of] my local tree[s] many months ago, and don't  
really remember the process.  :-)

   Any record of who put patch-ae in there in the first place?   
Probably just copied from the one in shells/zsh/patches.

   Thanks!  I appreciate all of the help.
