Thanks.  I checked that at the time, though (because the Wiki covers
it), and it didn't have nodev.

I'll try Bill's -p, and report back.

(Another factor that may be relevant is that I did the unpacking on
the FR, from within Qtopia - which means that I was using the Busybox
implementation of tar.  Perhaps I also need to make sure that I'm
using a proper tar?)
