Trying it now. Reading is looking good, reintegrating a bunch of
setattrs. Running make clean in the source trees worked. I've started a
full build but that will take a bit longer, since I'm at home and my
uplink is only about 384kbps. It is looking good though, in 5 minutes it
already had lwp/rpc2/rvm built and it is building coda now.
Reintegration is still working on pushing back the makefiles that
configure wrote.

I wouldn't have gotten this far without that patch you sent me.
