You don't ever 'cd' back out of the first subdirectory, so you can't
find the second:

Thanks Ralf. I feel pretty dumb. You know I suspected that was the problem, and was trying to cd ../. But now I realize I was putting the cd ../ in the wrong place. After my wrongly placed cd ../ didn't work (which I thought was rightly placed) I thought maybe that the example code at was correct and make would handle the cd'ing for me. Maybe I should file a documentation bug report with John Calcote!
