Wait, aren't we making this needlessly complicated?

Upgrading from 2.3 to 2.4 on the same machine is straightforward, 
simply compile 2.4 using the same ./configure flags, stop INN, run 
`make update` (note, NOT `make install`), and start INN.

In this case, don't start the new INN immediately; run makehistory 
first.  It will use the old spool and build overview using the new 
improved code.
