Subject: why w32api-1.2-1 is broken in setup 22.214.171.124
> I think I know why w32api-1.2-1 is broken in setup 126.96.36.199. That
> is, I don't know what bug to fix in setup, but I know what's unique
> about w32api-1.2-1.tar that is causing problems. The paths are of the
> form "./usr/lib/..." instead of "usr/lib/...". That extra "./"
> shouldn't matter but it causes the problem.

> properly. At least, that does it for me.

I've installed all packages except postgres. The only packages I have with
the leading './' are opengl and w32api.
