the issue was that 1) wouldnt work without the patch which
used items in $DIST_DIR.  (that should not be there yet???)

i cant get 2) to work yet, so something is missing - the only
thing i notice missing is the guile/slibcat file.  otherwise, the
DIST area actually has two extra-dlls in the share/lib (besides
the normal .la files).

3) seemed to work ok - but maybe it fails due to issues about
wanting INST_DIR vs DIST_DIR?

i am reminded of that old saying.  a man with one watch always
knows what time it is.  a man with two watches is never sure.  :)

i will play a little more, then need to call it a night.  have fun, h.
