     factor_stats.h:46 error: parse error before the '&' token" and things go
     downhill from there.  Perhaps I still haven't set the proper environment
     variable.  I also seem to be having a similar problem with Fedora Core 3,
     with regards to the examine.q file, in terms of parse errors.

You've done everything right.  The problem is, that line 46 of
factor_stats.h says:   `double stderr;'  On some system the symbol
stderr in stdio.h is a macro, which points to the standard error
device.  I happened to use `stderr' as an identifier for a variable
representing the standard error of a statistic.  

If you do a global search and replace in factor_stats.[ch] and
examine.q then this problem should go away.

     Hope this is helpful.

Very much so.  Thanks.  I've been caught out with `stderr' before and
should have remembered.
