This I think. contained the seeds of a fix because I am IIRC using the 
stretch pkgs.  Or am I? I could just as easily stepped into /usr/src, 
copied from the old drive and done a make clean, make, and become root 
to do the make install.  At my ago, long term memory is figuring out 
what I am doing about dinner, and still remembering it after I've walked 
the 25 feet to the kitchen to make it.  So I think the error message, 
which you said could ignored, is still there.

Its otherwise working.  Thank you Charles.
