Re: emacs install problem
That was the point. The install completed without complaint, but seemed not
to install anything.
Oh... Silly me... I've had horrible hardware problems of late. I just
installed a new motherboard.
I suppose this mangled install could be a symptom of that. Perhaps it's
best to ignore it unless others have the same symptom.
But still, that well-formed but "content-free" /etc/setup/emacs.lst.gz
seems hard to explain as a hardware fault, doesn't it? I assume that those
20 bytes are the minimum gzip header and that if the file were truly
malformed gzip would say so, correct?

You're missing all sorts of stuff -- there should be quite a large
collection of files with emacs in the name.
The various emacs executable files are hard-linked together,
perhaps that's the problem?
How does setup untar things? The files are bzip'd ustar
created with GNU cpio.
