I meant that some programs may only be used by kbd not itself, so we don't
need to install the seperate programs as well. Other programs in the kbd
suite may have the same functionality as the missing programs, because
they're built from the object files of these programs. I'd like to
investigate that first, before building duplicate programs.

There is no programming language, no matter how structured,
that will prevent programmers from writing bad programs.
