README?  No speak English.

My bad.  No, I didn't read it.  And yes, it compiled nicely after
removing the previous version.  Thanks for the quick reply.  I have
been lulled into a false sense of security because "sbocheck ;
sboupdate ..." has been so automatic.  The fact it works so well is, I
guess, both a good thing and a bad thing.

Also thanks to Tim Dickson for getting back.
