Renaaming the folder found in ~/.config let it launch!  All the uncommented
lines in the makefile I am blaming are as follows:

SHELL = /bin/sh
TARGET = coil_inducer

CC = gcc
CFLAGS = -02

rm -f *.o
rm -f coil
rm -f tables

I had commented out the workings of that makefile in an attempt to learn
how it works, and added some of the earlier lines, but accidently did not
comment out the last 4.  I don't know why it would modify my settings but?

So now sublime is working, but I want all my old tweaks back, wish me luck
in recovering them.
