Jim found a site where that exact fix was discussed at length, but missed 
the make setup stage, so his make install was reinstalling the old 
version, which was of course not fixing the problem.  That one has plenty 
of cpu, a 6 core intel but a bit short on memory and hd capacity.  He is 
in the process of building a much newer install but using postfix, which 
seems to be getting a higher grade of TLC.

Thanks Steve.
