Ok.  To be sure I got it I got rid of both and then rebuilt Lilypond
from a fresh update.  Now the phrase "sourced the correct ....script..."
is something I maybe don't understand.  After compiling Lily it says:

 *** Before running, buildscripts/out/lilypond-{profile,login}
 *** must be run. You're advised to source these scripts from your
 *** login scripts. For more information, see Invoking LilyPond in the 

"You're advised to source these scripts from your login scripts."

What does this mean exactly?  What I have been doing, following a
successful build is simply: ./buildscripts/out/lilypond-profile and then
./buildscripts/out/lilypond-login.  Am I missing some piece of

Now, after looking at the "Invoking Lilypond" as it says above I see
that ". lilypond-profile" needs to be added to my "profile".  I found a
.bash_profile file and added '. lilypond-profile' at the end of the
file.  Is that all there is to it?
