the line first need not since it tests for the presence of the directory
first, but the last two lines are actually a single command to compile
and link although it looks a bit like separate steps (I thought that at
first glance).  Anyway it should be harmless so I'd be inclined to leave
it until after the release to change it.

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
