Thats what I'm embarking on doing, building master from src. but the zip 
seems to be a problem, mc is unpacking it and copying to ~/src, doubling 
the 180 some megs of the zip, but with mc piping both, its watch paint 
dry slow, about 40 kilobytes/sec of 360+ megs of src. So its not yet 
done creating a source tree from the zip.  About 85% done when I last 
took a peek a minute ago.

Thanks John.
