Ok, I am in the process of trying it again now on a different
machine. I built the whole algebra just fine on my RedHat 8.0
system with gcc 3.2-7, but using Juergen's databases files of

I did notice that the new database files that I built were
slightly different in size than Juergen's (some a little
bigger and some a little smaller). I wonder how Juergen built
those database files. Right now it seems that they are the
only ones that work ...

But Juergen somehow managed to do it, right? Because the
ones that we started with (before I added Juergen's database
files to the CVS in September) also did not work. But I
think he claimed to have built the ones that do work using
that system. Or was there some other magic involved?

So I guess I am going to have to learn something about the
database files. As you look into this problem, if you feel
like discussing it, I'm all ears.

Anyway, I will let you know if I can build the new system
on my RedHat 9.0 system. (It's faster, it only takes about
3 hours to complete.) And if it fails like yours then I
will back out the CVS back to Juergen's database files.
