	Right - because all the hard-coded paths were pointing back at the
previous version :-)

	There used to be a tool:


	that you could pass the new path too having moved the source tree. It
is -likely- that that is not working -so- wonderfully these days (you'd
prolly need to re-source the new environment and do a new 'make
dev-install' after it).

	But it'd be good to fix that up so it continues working. Clearly if you
do an install with 'ooinstall <path>' that will continue working
~forever [ if you don't link it ] - and doesn't drag around the source
tree either, does that help ?
