Thanks vassili,

For the benefit of others who may come looking, here's a couple of missing
details which I discovered on my own, once I new what I was looking for!
;).  First, if you don't set NALFS_STAMP_DIR, it defaults to
/root/.nALFS/stamps/ (I'm assuming /root is really ~/).  Second, the stamps
dir is relative to the installation environment, so if you chroot in your
profile, it's relative to the chroot dir.  If you haven't chrooted, then
the dir is relative to the pwd you ran nALFS from.

Thanks again for your help vassili.
