This is the type of installation (after reading the many posts
on this subject recently) I will be experimenting with post-6.1.

Most of the experimentation will be involved in hand installing
the files (as you have done above).

Of course, another review of the configure parameters, however,
I believe we are real close on this one.

Thanks for the input, Archaic.
