I see. It must have occured on linux, but how could one not have it
installed if one does a 'make install' in mcs? Seems the makefile(s)
take care of this automagically.  One doesn't need to do something
special, right?

I totally agree with this. I'm still a bit stumped as to how it could
happen though (but it's not hard to stump me on things linux-ish).
