Hmmm, what's that doing there?

I was trying to find where "newslib" is set, because somebody asked on  And while I was grovelling through the source code, I
noticed that in, it's set to $pathlib.  So I started
grovelling for $pathlib, and for the life of me I can't find that being set
anywhere.  Have a look:

$ find . -type f -print | xargs grep pathlib
./obsolete/ inn_newslib = ${inn_pathlib}
./samples/$newslib = $pathlib;
./samples/$newslib = $pathlib;
./site/$newslib = $pathlib;

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
