Yeah, I moved them to a temporary directory as well.

I didn't think of it at the time and didn't notice until just now that
you are using the command '/bin/arch' which will return the
architecture of the machine that the OS is running on.  In this case
an i686.  I was doing ~mailman/bin/arch which is the archiver command.
