[Bug-XBoard] Problem with book

I just installed gnuchess-5.07.tar and  xboard-4.2.7.tar on a machine running 
Solaris 9 with CDE. Everything ran as expected except with respect to

book add book.pgn (after mv book_100.pgn book.pgn; ./gnuchess) produced 
and a copy ended up in /usr/local/bin after make install ran.

However when I start xboard and enter the first move the system takes
a very long time (10 seconds) to return P-Q4 to my P-K4 and seems to have
to re-invent standard openings on the fly. I'm guessing it's not using
the book, but I don't know how to "book on" using xboard. 

Could you please tell me what I did wrong here?
