Yes, this is a well known problem that I spend some time to find out
how it works.  The ungenerate files should be placed in a subdirectory 
called arc under current $LOCATION.  (eg.  /data/SPEARFISH/larss/arc   )

I have reported this before that this is missing in the manual page when 
the program was in alpha testing.

Hope this helps, besides this the program works fine, if you do the 
correct things in arc/info also.
