Hi Lou,

I'm afraid there may be incompatibility issues from using PyNGL that
was built under 10.3 on a 10.4 system. I had brief access to a Tiger
system a couple of days ago, and only some of the pynglex examples

I tried to build a new version of PyNGL on that system, but then ran
into a compatibility issue between the version of gcc I was running on
that system, and the version of g77 that I got from fink. (It was
something about not being able to find the file
"/usr/lib/gcc/powerpc-apple-darwin8/4.0.0/libgcc.a"; maybe Jeff
Whitaker can espouse on this problem.)

So, until I can get access to a Tiger system to do a rebuild (and
hopefully the g77 problem will be resolved by then), I'm not sure
there's much you can do at this point.

If somebody has a Tiger system that I can get a guest logon to, I
could attempt a build sooner.
