AFAIK, the only piece of the diff which actually changed something within
'domestic' was a diff to the domestic top-level Makefile which removed
a now-unnecessary piece of a conditional.

Anyway, if you could hold off until tomorrow, I'm currently in the process
of updating my source tree to 1.4_ALPHA, and as soon as that's done, I'm
going to roll a new set of diffs.  I'll go ahead and put one up which
doesn't include domestic/Makefile.
