	   removes the existing install directory (pre-install target);
	   it then depends on the REQ script to create the install
	   directory (${PREFIX}/${PGUSER}) by means of addnerd(8).
	   However, if the desired PGUSER and PGGROUP are already present
	   in the system (i.e. from a previous installation), addnerd(8)
	   will not create the install directory, and installation will

	2) The executables being installed are not being strip(1)'ped

	   attempt to install again.

	2) Observation.

	None supplied.
