Blech. Well hopefully the set of packages that both need multibuild and

Nope. If I remember right (I don't have my chart handy) binary-foo
calls install/PACKAGE so it can happen in all the usual places. Because

they put in their install/PACKAGE rules will get done last. (removing
the need for a post-install-hook now that I think about it)...
