Oops, sorry..... that didn't get applied tidily, did it?! Thanks for  
the fix.

Note that these directories should get filtered out at runtime if they  
don't actually exist. Remember that this is being done at build time;  
the idea is to include likely binary directories for the eventual  
user's system, which may include possibilities other than what's  
actually present on the build machine.
