Clearly it's been a while since I last tested uberbaum on 12+
different platforms.  Maybe src/expect just isn't useful any more on
currently-used platforms.  Objections withdrawn.

That said, I'd still like to be able to have check outs of expect,
tcl, tk, dejagnu, etc, and soft-links to them within the uberbaum
tree, and have the just-built trees be used, as if the directories
were in the uberbaum repository.
