Yep, I think this probably takes care of step 1 and possibly 3b, although
the message that Wouter gets is making me think that for some reason
the port has *not* run brandelf on the executables - if brandelf had been
run, wouldn't the error message mention ELF binary type 3, not 0?
So I went ahead and included all the steps, just to cover all bases :)
