Sorry, since discarded the test transcripts. It was literally the same
failures as David Wheeler had prior to RC4. Turns out add'l work was
required to set $PATH to include our utils/ directory where the
chmod+x scripts are. RC4's $PATH looks in a bin/ which has the right
scripts but they aren't chmod+x.

BinGOs is working to prepare the proper patch which will look
something like the attached. I have a bit of add'l patching on his
patch in that snippet because I think I detected a think-o.
