No, that's not quite right. The build is failing, but not because
libmwdrivers.a should be installed. It's supposed to be built as part
of building microwindows.

No, the package does not depend on itself. I built it without having
it installed, and I'm sure the other autobuilders are doing so too.

Yeah, it's pretty lame to redirect it. It should just be spewed to
stdout. I'll make that change at the least.
