I don't have physical access to Agnus. She is colocated in Virginia
(, and I am in the process of moving. I can't really take her
offline for to long because everyone will quit (if I am down for 5 minutes
I get phone calls and emails). So, I was hoping that someone would have a

Also, what I don't understand is why doesn't it work when I compile it
from an old pkgsrc (before elf). For right now, I would be happy to get
even an old version of ImageMagick work. This way I could upgrade properly
when I have time.
