Ack!  This is entirely my fault. I changed a few parts of the
build process (especially the part where the configuration tells
the library how to build, which was using files called build.h &
build.in and now does something else).  I think this means the
build process may not work on other systems too.

It should not be too hard to fix, but I can't do it right now.
It's possible that the normal unix / build (ie, 'configure ;
make' may work on Mac OS X without using the macosx directory.
I thought that was working a while ago, and don't think my
changes would have broken that.  Is this now broken as well?

Sorry for the trouble and thanks,
