<corrected your top posting>

Definitely do *not* install trunk Myth over packages, but rather
remove them first before doing your make install or attempting to run
any binaries.  Steamrolling over existing, older installs is a recipe
for disaster and is (in my experience) an extremely common cause of
random crashing and instability in people's self-compiled Myth
