Jeez, I'm sorry. I had actually seen that in the archives and decided to 
set readanysf~ aside for the time being. When I came back to it I forgot 
that I already knew what was causing the problem ;) That's a shame since 
a bunch of other externals (at least the versions I'm using) require 
flext 0.4.6.

Ummm... I wish I could debug it, but my knowledge of flext is 
nonexistant. Maybe something to do with the new build system? (which is 
very handy, btw).

Cheers, and sorry to disturb,
