422: more feedback

Zigbert reported:
Embedded bookmarks misses menu-icon
Ok, fixed.

Do you have any special reason for keeping readcd and other apps/scripts from the cdrkit package?
It has been considerably cut down. This is what I left in:

cdda2mp3 (small script)
dirsplit (small script)
icedax (cdda2wav)
pitchplay (small script)
readmult (small script)
wodim (cdrecord)
cdda2ogg (small script)
genisoimage (mkisofs)
readom (readcd)

dir2pet problem
Trying to create a bci-hinting-enabled freetype PET for ppa-422,
dir2pet in same is not working for me; see screen-caps below:

1. I press enter (= no menu entry) but GUI says BuildingBlock...

2. Fails to install (showing pet.spec entry):

The PET does not differ in structure from the four
bci-enabled freetype PET's I've posted so far
for boxpup and 4.21, these all
install and uninstall cleanly in their
target Puppies.

re dir2pet
No problem with 'BuildingBlock', that means it is a building-block package, without any menu entry.

The pet.specs file is ok.

Open a terminal and do the install like this:

# petget `pwd`/bci-ppa-4.2.2.pet

...see if it prints out any useful error messages.
