Interesting... I hadn't even considered grafting.  (I still wonder why
it's even trying to open *any* file in the store for output though...)

BTW, some examples of packages where I've had trouble, in case it helps
with testing:

 - Raart
 - Gregor
 - crypto (seemed to work last time, not sure why it wasn't working before)

Though at this point I also can't do just "raco setup" on a local
package either, but maybe resolving this issue will fix that.
