Looks like makelocalrc cannot find the strings library…?
I’m installing as root on a VMware ESXi vm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server x86_64:

…down into the install…

This install is for a small compile farm, so it’s not using MPI (I selected Option 1 then option 6 on the install menu). However, I will be doing a full cluster install on bare metal in 2 months or so. It would be nice to have this issue understood before then.
