    I have a tree (I am not near that computer) which has irda driver
    missing. Apparently my patch doesn't create directories automatically
    or I missed an option. Anyway this could be the problem - and the cure is
    to download the complete tarball.

    PS - for anyone who is interested my system is Slackware - and I found
    several utilities (like sed) being old enough so that new gnu stuff (like
    configure) doesn't work well. patch can be another one. On the other hand
    I think I upgraded it along with everything else.
