Thanks. We (well, "I", to be brutally honest) kinda dropped the ball on
this one; we renamed the file without thinking it through very well in
advance. Hopefully by the time the Validator and it's documentation is in
sufficient state that non-gurus are able to install it locally, this will
no longer be an issue. :-(

Ah, I think Ville didn't state this quite directly enough; CVS HEAD is very
likely to be in a non-runnable state (read: "horribly b0rken") for a long
while yet. That it happens to run right now is more an artifact of it being
in between major changes right now. You *really* want to be on
validator-0_6_0-branch if you want runnable code!

These are Nick Kew's improved XMLMessageReporter messages from OpenSP.
AFAIK these aren't in lq-nsgmls (right Liam?) and they shouldn't be enabled
by default in OpenSP (you need to give "./configure" the
"--with-xml-messages" flag to enable them). This suggests a bug somewhere,
combined with lq-nsgmls picking up the libosp.so from OpenSP instead of
it's own version.

Possibly we should put some effort towards making a static build of OpenSP
available for Mac OS X until all these issues are resolved. :-(

/me goes looking for the Dec2002 Dev Tools Update; all 300MB of it... :-(
