I noticed this with a straight vanilla FreeBSD build/install, but
have been busy with "other things" today.

It appears to me that the issue is that certain inistallation tools
(ITOOLS) are installed in a temporary directory -- see ca. lines 860 -
870 of head's src/Makefile.inc1 -- and "tail" hasn't been defined as one
of the required "installation tools."
