Ah, ok.  I'll have to do this and retry.  I'll also repost this on the
debian-alpha list since I don't think anyone's doing that during testing

I did have a very good example, but it took me a day to complete the whole
build process and, since it didn't work and I have little disk space, I
dumped it in favour of a non-Haifa-enabled build.  Also, I'm running a
UDB, so....  I haven't heard the results of the second test on the PC164
