Hmmm. This complicates the referee program. If you aren't able to find a way
around this, it's acceptable, just make note of it in your README. If you can
find a way around it, that would be better.

Which compiles on tyr:
cssa@tyr>setenv C_INCLUDE_PATH /usr/local/matlab5.3/extern/include/
cssa@tyr>setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /usr/local/matlab5.3/extern/lib/sol2/
