I don't undestand this. It seems like $f contains
/export/athen01/pmb/gpc/gpcbuild/gcc/p/docdemos, but f should only
contains file names without directories (the `echo *' in the `for'

Unless I'm overlooking something, you either have a very strange
shell or echo command, or something else is going wrong ... If you
know a little about shell programming, you might want to try to
debug it, otherwise I can't help you now.

I have little time now, and I'll be out of town for ~3 weeks (I'll
read email and might answer occasionally, but don't bet on it) ...
