It builds fine, and the resulting installation works fine when I put
some sky catalogs in /usr/share/astrometry/data/.  The question
becomes, would it be better to create a separate package
(astrometry.net-data-tycho or such) for the (example/test) catalogs,
than to have them in the binary/source packages?  Theoretically, and I
suppose in eventual actuality as well, there could be many different
sets of catalogs, so separate packaging sounds like the way to go ...

With the notice/question above, it worked like a charm -- and I thank
you dearly!
