     Unfortunately, only works if you have installed using rpm; on most of the
machines here things have been recompiled from source and rpm either doesn't
provide info or doesn't provide accurate info. 

     In particular, I've got one box that works correctly and one that doesn't,
but I can't get the version for the one that does.
