  Hmm… I don’t think anything changed in the build system.  And it works find for my systems.

  Is it *only* that file, or is it other modules, too?

  If it’s only that file, then the issue is the build for that file.  If it’s other modules, then the entire build system needs fixing.

  The *installed* modules should be the ones which link to the installed modules...

  The file was added recently.  Is it needed, or can we just delete it?
