That seems to have been the problem.  It seems that Emacs was not
looking there -- and, needless to say, neither was I.

I apologize.  I meant to do so, but forgot.  For my many sins, I am
running it under Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 Build 2600 with
Cygwin 1.5.25(0.156/4/2).  I did not compile it myself.

Thank you for your patience.
