Will be attached in the next email.  Sorry for the delay.  What you'll
get there is the title of every configuration that is made, and the
list of files in that configuration.

(If anyone else is interested, I can probably make these things
available somehwere if anyone else is interested, but you can the tar
files themselves and run 'tar tvzf'.)

Your separation between developers and used will always lead problems
when you're dealing with a package that is intended for users who are
themselves programmers.  What activities do you expect such users to do?
