Sorry, false alarm.

The build proceeded so quietly and quickly, (and my modified code worked
the first time!) that I assumed it must have not been built at all, but I
was wrong.  Congratulations to the build team!  But a bit more verbosity to
reassure me that a source file was compiled and a library was linked,
