I can do that, but it will be after I dl a 2nd copy and unpack it with 
tar.  Or if I can find a deb, get that. Clicking on the downloaded file 
brought up squeeze, and squeeze after screwing around for a while 
because I never saw it before, AND the double click did not even pass 
the filename to squeeze to open, I had to go find it and open it, it 
unpacked what looks to be a legit, ready to run directory tree, that 
contains nothing executable by man despite the shown permissions.

correct.  You might want to fix the recipe so it puts a trailing space 
after the --
