The "several" is 112 files.
115 files have size changes
	Of course, not all changes mean anything.


But I'm really concerned about those dependency lists
being -1. Most of the "missing" stuff may be explainable
by the fact that I ran not as root.

Come to think of it, perhaps that's the main problem.

I'll re-run and get back to you.
