This was happening when I tried to install firefox again after it not
installing.  That is, it wouldn't install, and I would retype 'butch
install firefox,' and some of the dependencies would rebuild as if butch
didn't know they were installed.

It was also weird the way some of the deps wouldn't download for a while
and then would.  That is, say there were 10 deps;  three might not be able
to download;  I'd check on this computer that they were there and
downloadable, but after a while they'd download fine.

Thanks for the qt4 amendment. I wiped everything out and in the next 24 I'm
trying a couple different orders of compiling apps.  Doing this a few times
mixing it up we'll see if thinks like the above happen regularly.

We're gettin there,

Will
