You're right, thanks for the reminder.

It wasn't high priority so there's a good chance it's unresolved. I don't 
assume something has been fixed because of the date. It was probably marked 
as low priority at the time so nobody looked at it. It shouldn't take long to 
dome some QA and see what needs to be done.

The binaries are fine, it's the 'make config' part that is the problem. 
Apparently with the current instructions if you say yes to build the mii 
thing, it doesn't get built. It appears as though the build is based on the 
_previous_ config run, not the current one.
