   These two libraries are provided by webkitgtk. That was not installed when
I tried webkit2gtk. Removed the latter and rebuilt/re-installed
webkitgtk-2.4.11 from the SBo repository. Why two of those libraries were
version 51 I don't know. It was a clean installation of webkitgtk.

   OK. I'll see if there's time tomorrow after finishing my new 64-bit
server/workstation with 14.2 on it.

   The only applications on /usr/local/ are not supplied by SBo, such as
jpilot, treeline, and grass.
