Fair enough. :-)

I don't think this is the right way to fix it. Sorry! :-( I say this because it worked somewhat by luck before, and now it's broken. If we put in another "it'll work because of a side effect of an unintentional characteristic of the build system" hack, it'll just likely break again someday if/when we change the build system.
I'd prefer a more robust solution that won't break as a side-effect of the build system.
