Thanks for the suggestion. I had found that these test failures were
already reported [1] together with a suggested patch. So I applied the
patch and then it installed cleanly. Hopefully there'll be another
release soon.

The new version, or more probably one of the dependency upgrades, also
fixed the machine so my programs work again. So I'm just left with an
unexplained mystery as to exactly what the problem was. C'est la vie.

Cheers, Dave
