Good Lord - don't you folks ever sleep. I'm off to bed I'm pooped - but
that is what I thought as well was that setup assumed certain things to
be in certain places just as we assume that all source files will contain
the string '-src' to find the source packages. I really don't see how
setup will know that a /src or a /usr/src or any derivative of that as a
mount point or not should be used or not used. Seems to me it has to
have some givens as to where files belong *or* we use another dialog and
ask the user where he wants the source just as we ask about root.
