Hi George,

That might be a problem. Could you send me the full log. What is the
DEJAGNU environment variable set to? It should point to a site.exp file.

These things are often best sorted out face-to-face. We'll be in Bristol
on Friday, or do come down to Lymington tomorrow if this is holding you
up and you'd like to get it sorted quickly.

I have to admit your soldering skills are unique. More practice clearly

We'll do what we can.
