OK, I just removed all the existing Nettle directories, and did svn update.
Nettle built and installed its packages in the right place, alongside the
Socketwatch packages.

There is one inconsistancy, Now that you are linking zlib, you need to
have zlib1g in the Nettle depends file.

I have found some problems when the autobuilder builds wget.

Bzip2 builds absolute binaries and fails to stat when copying.
Tar1.26 builds e1f binaries but fails with
cannot stat '/home/ron/gccsdk/autobuilder/tar/tar-1.26/src/*,ff8'

I am sort of confused, I thought everything was to be built as e1f
Is it just that EXT_EXE is mistakenly being set to ff8 somewhere?

I built libcurl3 successfully but it accessed the unfinished bzip2
directory source files to do it.
It did look for Bzip2 several times.
