Hmmm... Looks like you're on to something here, Steve;

That "i386" doesn't look right, does it?

I guess I've done something terribly wrong during makeworld
(make installworld hasn't been done yet).
I've /obviously/ overlooked something. Would anyone care to
/kick/ me in the right direction?
Apologies for the "niose"

Thank you for all your time and consideration.
