The bug's been fixed (in CVS) for a long time.

Unfortunately, there hasn't been a new release of OpenMCL in an even
longer time.  (It would take a few  days to put together, and I haven't
had a few days' time in many months.)

One approach to fixing the bug is described here:


(It also works to just do a "cvs update" and rebuild from sources, if
you're comfortable with that.)
