Ah!  I didn't even notice that option.  Duh.

Yes, I didn't read that particular doc....   because I am not using 
schroot, I'm just running Ubuntu 9.04 32-bit.

Yep, that's what I was missing.  Make worked this time.  Thanks!

Now the only questions left on my current open question list are:

How does one connect to that serial port?  Is there some kind of dongle 
one has to jam in there?

Will the WikiReader work with 16GB cards?  Or larger?
