Thanks for the pointer to the Norman's libs. I had been looking for those but 
could not find them anywhere.

It appears that it is working now. How are Andy's libs meant to be used?

One point I have discovered, is that (on Cygwin at least) the shortcut to your 
home directory, ~/, doesn't seem to get parsed properly when setting fg-root:

        $ fgfs --fg-root=~/FGFS/FlightGear/data/

        Base package check failed ... Found version [none] at: 
        Please upgrade to version: 0.9.8

        $ fgfs --fg-root=/home/Richard.Bytheway/FGFS/FlightGear/data/

        ...(normal startup)

Thanks again.
