Because I ALWAYS build the server myself, and then do an installation.  I
do this because sometimes I don't want to install the server.  Without
this change, I have to sit through a couple of screens of messages just to
install the server.  While I am doing development, I may install the
server five or six times in an hour.  This wouldn't be an issue, except
that we ALWAYS do some compilation, even if it is just buildmark.c and
modules.c.  And, I have watching what I was doing scroll off the screen
because I tried to install a new version of the server.  Especially when I
am working on the install problems.
