 Yeah, what's the rush ?

 My build of chapter 6 finished this morning, I haven't yet had time
to look at the test results, beyond the one oddity I reported.

 At the moment, it's doing an in-place rebuild so I can see if
'farce' is again usable.  Didn't get very far, my script installs
the docs for gmp and I forgot to change 'mkdir -v' to 'mkdir -vp' in
my script.

 Completing the build to a point where I can boot it will probably
take me a few days, I've not yet got to the end of my list of things
to look at for my new desktop, and I now build a lot before
rebooting, so don't wait on my account if you're in a hurry.

das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce
