	Both deleted, and recursively 'wipe'd /opt/local.

	By "fresh installed systems" do you mean I must wipe my entire disk and 
start all over again to gain that condition? I've reinstalled from the 
gray install discs at least three times; it all gets hazy after so many 

	Could there possibly be some boot setting I have made that would remove 
the version numbers from a system library?

	Could the fact that 'locate' does not find libTIFF.dylib in /usr/lib 
mean the version number is a phony caused by a missing library in /usr/lib?
