Thanks Randy.  I've been playing with it tonight.  It doesn't build 
quite clean for me (warning: ... differ in signedness in several 
places).  But it's not a big deal.

I am wondering if we should be automatically accepting the defaults for 
the config.  There are several defaults that don't make sense for most 
people, even if the build is OK.
