 That was it, absolutely.  All is well.  Thank you for your help, and I'm
 sorry for wasting your time.  
 When I deinstalled libebml, it complained about the missing headers: 
 pkg_delete: cannot remove non-existent directory `/usr/pkg/include/ebml'
 this packing list is incorrect - ignoring delete request
 pkg_delete: couldn't entirely delete package `libebml-0.7.4'
 (perhaps the packing list is incorrectly specified?)
 Rebuilding it, and 'make install' of libmatroska proceeded uneventfully.  
 Perhaps at some point in the past the ebml package failed to install its
 header files.  Even though my tree was up to date, perhaps the package had
 been installed before updating the tree.  
 The reason I decided to open a PR was that the latest binary build of
 libmatroska is a version behind on
  I thought perhaps there were problems building it and that I had
 identified a possible cause.  Was that misguided?
