  Hopefully I can help with this...

  I believe that the library is for the video processing.  If you remove
pix_video*.* you should be okay.

  Yes, assuming that you have all of the libraries (they haven't changed
from 0.79).  I'm sorry to everyone that I haven't had time to compile
Gem 0.80 for the SGI yet.  However, it looks like I may be getting
physical access to an Octane soon at CNMAT, so I'll have to see.

  Can you tell me which ones are screwed up?  I want to make sure that
everything is okay.

Later, Mark
