Sure.  But it's *also* a cross build tool; it is (was) even configured
that way.  It may be good if google would find mknetrel when you look
for cygwin+cross+packaging?

It wasn't?  Sorry, I'll have a close look at CVS.

Hmm, very odd.  I'll try to remember this exception.

I don't think so; it depends on your defaults.  This is only the so
in the 'exceptional' case where netrel_root=.

My layout is:


/bin and /extra are in the mknetrel source dir, and the others may
well be somewhere else.  Without this fix, mknetrel tries to find
/extra under /netrel.
