        Why? It seems to work perfectly fine here.
__> basename /usr/local/src/arch/packages--debian/kernel-package/kernel-package/debian/common/checklibs

        You do not seem to understand what trap does.  I unlink temp
 files the moment I am done with them.  Traps are set to handle
 exceptions, and to clean up when those occur.

        Please read up on signal handling; your remark seems to indicate
 you don't know what it is all about.

        Right. It is standard boilerplate for my scripts; I usually use
 it in diagnostic messages; of which none seemed to have survived into

        awk and Perl are essential packages; python would mean a
 dependency.  I also don''t like python, so I am unlikely to add python
 code to my build system.

        I don't understand that comment.
,----[  Manual page objdump(1) ]
|        objdump [-a|--archive-headers] <<SNIP>>  objfile...
|        objdump  displays  information  about  one  or  more object files.

        I don't understand this comment either.
