It didn't.

I created the ebin directory and re-ran make.  It got further, but now fails
with this message:

---
erlc -pa ../ebin -W -I../include +warn_unused_vars +nowarn_shadow_vars
+warn_unused_import -o../ebin eunit_data.erl
./eunit_data.erl:29: can't find include lib "kernel/include/file.hrl"
./eunit_data.erl:337: record file_info undefined
./eunit_data.erl:611: record file_info undefined
make[1]: *** [../ebin/eunit_data.beam] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/steven/eunit/src'
make: *** [subdirs] Error 2
---

/usr/lib/erlang/lib contains kernel-2.12.5, but no kernel. ./kernel-2.12.5
lacks an include directory.  find / -type f -name file.hrl returns nothing.

Thanks for your help.

Steven
