Dear Chris Galvan:

Thank you very much for the patches to Tahoe packaging.  While  
waiting for #505, I committed this small change [2901] to keep going  
instead of stopping with an error if trial can't be found at makefile  
time.  However, since Twisted Trial isn't actually installed on one  
of the buildslaves -- yukyuk [1] -- the tests currently don't run on  

I have to concentrate on immutable file checker/verifier this week,  
but if you and Brian (or someone) are going to work on #505 then I  
will leave yukyuk like it is so that you can see that it turns green  
once a patch that fixes #505 is committed.

If you're not, then I'll install Twisted on yukyuk and remove the  
part of http://allmydata.org/source/tahoe/trunk/docs/install.html  
that advises users to run the tests, for now.
