so far as I can tell, I have all required dependencies and, apparently, 
the make worked(?).  However, no minerd as the README suggests.

I updated, upgraded, fixed blocked packages, dist-upgraded, installed 
packages.  Not sure what's missing.

No command 'minerd' found, did you mean:
 Command 'mined' from package 'mined' (universe)

I downloaded the zip file instead of using git, as some websites suggest.  
I don't see any errors, or nothing that looks like an error to me.  I see 
mention of minerd and scrypt, which are the particular programs.   Don't 
get it.
