	Yes, although I don't use all possible things myself.
	(Systems like vger.rutgers.edu *do* run almoast
	 everything imaginable, and it *does* work.)

	The problem is likely that 'make install' WILL NOT
	OVERWRITE PRE-EXISTING *.cf FILES for the router.
	(It does tell that, but it is drowned into the clutter
	 of notes during the 'make install' execution ... )

	You have to manually migrate your possibly customized
	scripts to the new ones -- migrate your own changes to
	the new files.

	A note at  README.UPGRADING  does warn about this
	change semi-offhandledly..
