That got the ttsprojects tree as expected.

It's there and contains

	That is the problem. There is no Makefile so everything
stops with the expected message about there being no targets

	I only did one thing before adding git and that was to do

apt-get update and apt-get upgrade which brings the new system up
to date.

	All of the target directories in ttsprojects/raspberry-pi/libilctts
do have Makefiles but the Makefile that should have been in libilctts
should take care of directing what gets made and what to do if
there are problems and that Makefile is not there.
	I hate to sound stupid but I figured I'd bring it up
since it can be the difference between wasting a lot of time and
ending up with the desired results.

	Again, many thanks.
