I am finding out that your suggestion (update TDS ) works better than
adding the *.sty files in the working directory.

The lshort-5.01 source depends on many newer packages one of which I
have found is :

Also the lshort-letter.tex is missing in src/ directory and I have found

selected it and copied over to src/ directory.  I am making progress,
but not there yet.  It is interesting how many things change and *it*
is hard & difficult task to keep up with the changes.
