That's what I originally thought when I asked for my clarification,
but I misunderstood your clarification. The joys of remote
communicating :)

Ah. That makes much more sense. So the `-l lisp` puts me into lisp,
and from there I call ../mk/org-fixup. Gotcha.

Thanks for that. In the other thread, I actually mentioned that I've
been compiling successfully (or at least I thought) from org.git for
some time (a couple years?). It was only once I started looking into
the UTILITIES vs. mk folder issue and re-reading the instructions on
Worg that I realized I'd been doing it wrong by compiling from org.git
instead of from within UTILITIES/mk. As we've now discovered, I was
actually doing fine for all that time and only from following
directions did we get to have this nice long conversation.

Thanks again for hanging in there with me -- truly!
