Whilst I haven't tried your package (I will soon), I took a look
at the ivtools software when you posted the pointer to it, with a
view to making a package of it. Unfortunately, it insists on using
imake with absolute paths, and so anyone using OBJMACHINE is going
to have a hard time (as I did), finding


It was at that point that I gave up. I'll have a look at your package
to see how you got around the problem.

[Whilst I've got nothing against imake, whoever chose to use cpp
as a general macro processor was barking up the wrong tree. Or
maybe just barking.]
