The target 'TAGS' already creates a TAGS file, so this is done.

There is a logical pathname translation for the Java src as SYS:JAVA 
pointing to the root of Java source tree, and SYS:SRC pointing to the 
Lisp source.  See 'system.lisp' as generated by the build system.

Tobias made some detailed notes for suggestions concerning the 
modernization of the source location system.  Is it ok if I add these 
directly to ticket #88 Tobias?
