Hi Simon,

This was an oddity in the NCBI compile scripts for BLAST 2.2.26+
which can be avoided via a symlink, editing their code, or more simply
just downloading their provided binaries.

I prefer the later because it is simpler, faster, and should better
ensure reproducibility by eliminating things like different compilers
and their settings. Unfortunately the new install process to do this
from within the Tool Shed is glitching on the Tool Shed's nightly tests:

Nevertheless, the simple binary install is working for me and Bjoern.
Could you try the Test Tool Shed package and let us know if that works
for you?

Test Tool Shed,
depends on this,

Or, try installing this directly (although it won't get used yet):

Given some confirmation then I think I will update the Main Tool Shed
http://toolshed.g2.bx.psu.edu/view/devteam/ncbi_blast_plus (which
currently tries to compile BLAST) to instead depend on the new package
which fetches the binaries.
