I'm back a bit from the tip of the CVS tree, so this might not
be current, but as of around 8 October, installing as root gets
in the way of later operations.  I think this is an artifact
of having Perl in the build.

I did a 'su root' and a 'make install', then as my normal user
self, attempted to do the regression tests.  They failed and
left the attached file in install.log.  It points at a problem
with permissions on a file left behind by the 'make install'
in the Perl stuff.

BTW, I'm back from the tip because of instability when I started
looking at this stuff.  Is it stable enough to install and run
now?
