RE: [issue730] Latest DEVEL still reflects old pkg_* paths

:     You must have a slow machine, but don't worry.

I do (600MHZ P3 ~512MB RAM), this is one of the reasons I'm putting together
the new one.

:     I think you are on the right track though I have my reservations
:     about trying to use a lua-integrated version for this release.

Right now, I'm just trying to get it to build and put its data in the right
place.  When I get that accomplished, I was going to remove the lua stuff.
I haven't heard a case for keeping it.

:     I will start playing with your patch just to see how easy or
:     difficult it winds up being.

The current patch that's available for download ends up putting the
installer's libraries in the wrong place on the .iso which makes the
executables unable to run.   I'm trying a new iteration now.  However,
between the slow build time and the fact that I'm back at work, my debugging
turnaround time is hampered.

That being said, when I get home I'm going to reconfigure my new machine so
I can churn stuff out quicker.  Its current RAID device is a new NVIDIA
MediaShield controller that isn't supported by DF.  NVIDIA provides a linux
driver for it, so I'll work on porting it at some time in the future.  Right
now, I'm going to disable the RAID and install DF onto one of the drives.
Then, with the quicker system, I can hopefully knock the new installer out
pretty quickly.

:     I'm not patricularly concerned about 
:     a little extra bloat for this release since we have a ton of space 
:     on the CD, but I definitely don't want to get bogged down in having 
:     to have a dozen packages installed on the CD just to support the
:     (not having tried the patch yet I don't know what the requirements
:     are, if any).

My goal is after I get it to build successfully, to streamline the process
to remove the bloat everyone is referring to.  I can't yet provide an ETA on
this though.
