Cool! I didn't know that, so thanks for the thumbs up!

Correct!  But I wanted to be careful here. But in fact I think now that move
the old 



and moved the files we need out of it, we can in fact clean up via, say,

        $ svn rm pkg/src/ncl.original
        $ svn ci pkg -m'remove unused parts of ncl library'

but I think I should leave that to one of the actual phylobase maintainers.

Hadn't noticed.

That one actually blocks building which is why I #ifdef'ed it out.

Oh, the sweet sound of progress :)
