I want to mention quickly how to differentiate these
problems form other problems you may have introduced
yourself.  All of them will have an error message of
the form

db2omf: <Description of problem>

If you see an error message starting with "db2omf:",
then it's a result of this change.  Otherwise, it's
somebody else's fault.  (But obviously, we'll still
help with any documentation-related build problems.)
