The bug prevented the extension .so from being installed in a 
subdirectory of lib.  I think that's the bug on the TODO list, so yes, I 
think we (I mean Aaron) fixed it.

Aaron, given this version a try to make sure it works as intended.  I 
don't have a native extension that triggers it handy.

And I echo Chad's thanks!
