Been busy, so just an update. My jessie is "probably" broken in some way I cannot imagine, but not ready to do a fresh install.

When I have a better internet connection I will do the dist-upgrade (and maybe end at 8.5 rather than "stretch/sid"

After the updates I mentioned earlier ./bootstrap churns along but ends with:
