Thanks for your explaination. This is what I gathered from Alexandre's  
post but I got a msg saying that target did not exist :?

bash-3.2#make maintainer-clean
make: *** No rule to make target `maintainer-clean'.  Stop.

I have resolved the immediate problem by deleting everything in sight  
including the source and starting over again.

When I can spare the computer next I will try 'make maintainer-clean'  
again, now it is all installed.

I'd prefer to do this cleanly rather than having to resort to shotgun  

Thanks again.
