Great...I'm glad things are working. At the worst, it looks like in
some circumstances you have problems compiling elsize:

Above it looks like it worked. Then in the next attachment:

It's not easy to see what command is being executed for the following
types of errors.

But, in this run, elsize was not correctly made.

Good news, however: (1) The first time it worked, so use that; (2)
elsize is very rarely used anyway, so it's likely you will never miss

For Amber11, we have rewritten elsize as a C program which is a lot more
portable. [It's not the language per se, but it is true (in my
experience) that C++ can be abused to give code that is both
compiler-dependent and which gives compiler errors in other environments
that are very hard to track down.]
