I saw this too and downloaded the program.  Just like Roger, I didn't get a
clean compile the first time; unlike Roger, I stopped there.  Roger, if you
get David's permission could you make the binary available?  Barring that
we'll just have to make your mod to our own config.h files.  Anyway, I
invited David Madore to join this mailing list, but I don't think he's done
so yet.
