Thank-you for your suggestion.  I hadn't considered, but reluctantly did
try NO_STAGE=yes with both rsync and openssl, it made no difference, the
packages failed with tar stat failures.

I believe that PREFIX=/usr is not supported, per 

So I'll need to review how servers are built & updated given that many
are already deployed (in the meantime, I'll revert the packages needed
in /usr and try to maintain separately in support of customers -
