I must have forgotten the u (-r rather than -ru) (read mistyped, as I 
"always" use the -u option)

Will redo all of them in about 24 hours.

Well, let me know what needs to be deleted - I see the member detection 
as the equivalent of reading the output of "ldconfig -p" to search for 
where an archive might be, or compareable with the gcc command (forgot 
the options) to say where it is looking.

Not going into Python2 misses the whole point from my perspective.

Unfortunate (for my perspective) is that noone else is saying anything 
one way or the other.
