       I did more tidying.  "ls -l /usr/local/bin/" contained 854 
objects before I did "rm" on 451 that were alias for objects in 
"/usr/local/texlive/2016".  After I did that, "ls -l /usr/local/bin/" 
contained 403 = 854-451 objects.

       Thanks again to Ken Beath, Peter Dalgaard, Eberhard W Lisse, 
Berend Hasselman, marc Schwartz, Adrian Dușa, and everyone else who took 
the time to consider the question.  This had been a problem for me since 
at least early February.  It's good to have it fixed.
