   A VPATH build is when you compile in a directory other than the source
   directory.  This is useful when you want to compile a package for
   different configurations but from a common source.  The name stems
   from the fact that it is implemented using the VPATH variable of make.

could you describe VPATH as "configure in place, make from elsewhere"?
or is configure done elsewhere also?  i've heard the latter referred to
as srcdir!=builddir (and usually make is done where configure is).

   It is already.

all i see is this:

  During snarfing, the pre-processor macro @code{SCM_MAGIC_SNARFER} is

i'm assuming that whatever changes made to branch_release-1-6 that are
long-term applicable would be also made in HEAD roughly concurrently,
but i guess this is saved for later?
