Thanks, but I tried that without success. Since posting about this I've
been doing more Googling and came across a page that suggested that OO
wouldn't compile properly on amd64 (I should have mentioned that I'm
using 64bit).  If this report is true, one wonders why it''s part of the
64bit distribution.  Anyway, I've now removed it.
