Thank you!  It looks like your spec is based mostly on what's in Owl
rather than on the preliminary update I had posted, although indeed they
have changes in common.

I've just committed an update to 2014i (released on Oct 22).

Hmm, yes - it is looping on the CPU.  Without "-v" it works fine.

BTW, this no longer finds any duplicates:

Why?!  This copying appears to be unneeded.  It was not in the old spec
file in Owl, and it is not in what I committed now.

Thank you for noticing that there were more checks to add.  I've added
"check_white_space check_sorted" compared to what was in the preliminary
spec update.

I am using Dmitry's suggestion here - don't override TOPDIR, and exclude
/usr/local.  It felt dirtier to me initially, which is why I had not
included it in the preliminary spec in July, but if Dmitry suggested it,
this hack must be good enough to use. ;-)

I kept %_datadir/zoneinfo-leaps here.  I don't know why you chose to
move away from use of the macro for this directive.
