Alright.  This is actually my second build attempt; I had decided to continue
past this one the first time, only to have the butterfly build check, twelve
hours later, still working on a long line of FAILs.  I'll probably go back, and
give the details, but I was starting to wonder if these errors might be the
source of the problem.

I'll keep that in mind; it didn't really occur to me that piping a file to
standard output could be a risk, although in hindsight it does seem a reasonable
