Thanks again Tassilo,

You were right for the babel package, I use it all the time.  But some
other packages not so often

I tried this:

#+LATEX_HEADER: "\usepackage{longtable}"

No effects?

For the time being I am stuck with this version.  I am sending a request to
our IT group to upgrade Emacs to the most recent version for the version of
RedHat we have, this should have a more recent version of org-mode, if I am
lucky that should be done in a couple weeks.  In the mean time I will
manually add, or exclude, what I want from the exported "*.tex" file.

For the little I have done with org mode I still think it looks like a
great package and I am planning to learn to use it better so I use it more.
Thanks to all contributors.
