Changes I checked in today make BRL work with Kawa 1.7beta2. The new
path-segments functionality is not yet working. I also fixed a couple

I've finally gotten ssh and emacs to play nicely together, and will be using vc-comment-to-change-log more frequently. Expect ChangeLog entries with release 2.1.14, as well as better log entries in the CVS repository.
