Drat :-) I was assuming that the file was built from source somewhere rather 
than being a preexisting binary... I should have looked in the sibling 

Incidentally, something curious here. You might remember that a week ago I was 
getting stuck on the inconsistent register-assignment nasty, I built and 
installed an apparently-working 2.1.4 shortly after you pointed out that it 
tended to be a transiant problem. Odd thing is that since that point I've gone 
through the entire exercise a second time- 2.0.0 binary compiling 2.0.4 hence 
compiling 2.1.4, and the 2.1.4 compilation hadn't failed.

Work continues here, I'll be back. I /really/ want to get this sorted out.
