Sorry about that ... I originally worked with 3.3.7 and then 'ported' by hand to svn.  I couldn't actually test that I'd got it right in svn since I'd need to run automeake there, and my machines use an older version than the one you are using to make releases (I guess I could build/installe the latest automake/autoconf, but that might mess up other software I work with).

I don't know what you mean by that.  If you are talking about something to do with C++ I'm probably not much good for it ... I gave up programming in C++ in 1995 (about the time templates were being added to the language in gcc) and it's really unfamiliar/slow for me to use it now.
