--- Comment #9 from Ross Boylan <Ross.Boylan at ucsf.edu> ---
Well, the message just says a package isn't installed.  The immediate point is
that the install instructions for kdiff3 are still incomplete.

I don't know if it's a kdiff3 or, more likely, a craft issue, but it seems odd
that craft doesn't go ahead and install the package nsis.

If the intent of the message from craft was that I should execute 'craft nsis',
that is not clear.  That phrase currently reads as an appositive for "nsis
package" NOT as an instruction.  Admittedly it doesn't quite make sense in that

On the theory that it was intended as an instruction (which for some reason
craft --package didn't want to execute) I executed 'craft nsis' and then
repeated the craft --package command.  I think this worked.

So does the line
mean that file is an installer for the kdiff3 I  previously built?

Here's the transcript of the final, --package, step:
