This gave me problems because the 'lrm lunar' associated with the previous
version removes files that are then required in the current build!
# Building lunar version 1
# Here, have a cookie!
# make: Nothing to be done for 'all'.

I first recovered the previous version from the tar file in
/var/cache/lunar/lunar-201108* but this step was probably not
I later unpacked the new tarball from /var/spool/lunar and
simply ran 'make install' in the source directory. To make sure
that everything was tracked again, I then re-ran 'lin lunar'
Not sure whether this is a glitch or whether it will bite again.
