OK - if the RPM has makebearoff, then you can do what it suggests,
then copy the file to the same directory as the RPM has placed
gnubg.wd (in my case, FreeBSD, it's /usr/local/share/gnubg/ but the
RPM might install it elsewhere. If you don't have makeweights, you can
get it via anonymoys ftp (or using a web browser) from


copy this to gnubg_ts0.bd as described in the previous paragraph
