Hello, Thomas :)
First of all, thanks for your quick response :)  But I tried what you
said, and "subdir" re-wrote itself, with the line that I deleted put
back in.  When I discovered this, I wasn't willing to take the risk of
installing k3b, so I aborted the build.  I will try again afte I get
home from work :)
