Thanks Angelo.  But, one shouldn't have to build in a specific directory, or 
guess about a directory structure, and this should be an easy thing to fix. 

If it is a semi-hard coded (if should a thing code be) reference or assumption 
in a Makefile then it should be corrected in my opinion.

It would be good to know why "make" aborted on blessmail.el.  It was reported as
"Fatal error (6)make[1]: *** [blessmail] Aborted (core dumped)" below.
