The change I made was to <paths.h>, and that changed file was to be
re-installed in $DESTDIR/include, and it was indeed re-installed when I
manually ran "$TOOLDIR/bin/nbmake-i386 includes".
I thought the build had failed while building the compatability library
used for the tools (though I can no longer prove that without repeating
the experiment since I didn't keep a typescript). I may very easily
have been mistaken about which stage the build was in though...
If the tools build doesn't use $DESTDIR/include then my suggestion is
obviously pointless, however it seems to me that if the build of the
tools does use $DESTDIR/include then "make includes" must be run before
the (rest of the) tools are built.
