Yes, and I replied.  It's just so far from giving me any clue on what
the heck he is talking about.

README-Users.m4 gets processed by m4 to become release/README.  It is
arch specfic.

He is muddling this, I think, with README on the top-level, which is
arch-indep not architecture dependant.

Moreover, that dh_installdocs is run within arch-indep, so what would
that have to do with the m68k build?

I have not data supplied to me here that helps tell me what problem
you guys are having, or how to fix it.

Please do.  I plan on uploading 2.2.18 source pkg on Sunday.
