A few questions before I start applying patches:

Does it matter if we 'make' from the Src directory vs. from it's parent?
It seems to work either way.

How often does one have to './configure'?

Rebuilding from virgin source, I ended up with a different size for zsh,
that's a bit scary, is it ok, or did I manage to farkle something? The new sized
build has been running without obvious trouble for several days.

-rwxr-xr-x 1  708980 2014-10-22//19:16:30 Src/Virgin/zsh*
Used for several days:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 711892 2014-11-04//19:59:26 /usr/local/bin/zsh-test2-orig-rebuild*
Rebuilt just now:

Where does one find function help in gcc? I'm still using my ancient Borland C

I managed to create a bit of a disaster with my 'printf()s' used for tracing, several system files were trashed, which isn't exactly surprising, since so many files can be open. Would "fprintf(stderr, ..." be any safer? What's the standard way of
doing that sort of thing?  I still think like a DOS man.

utils.c:(.text+0x344e): warning: the use of `mktemp' is dangerous, better use `mkstemp' or `mkdtemp'

Anything to learn from the warning?  Can it be got rid of?
