Thanks, good to know... but let me ask you then:
what is more likely:
- that someone changed the way that dev-install works in the Makefile
and missed install-tb in the same make file a bit below...
- that someone change how the Makefile recursion thingy works and
forget to update bin/ (*) in the contrib/buildbot
repo ?
