OK, sorry about this.  I think a few things are conspiring:

* cygport didn't tell me that orpie depends on lapack, and I had forgotten
that it does, and stupidly removed it from setup.hint.

* In order for lapack to work, you have to have /usr/lib/lapack in your
$PATH.  IMO that's a bug, but the lapack maintainer told me a couple of
years ago that it's a wontfix.

So Thomas, please try this:  install lapack, and add /usr/bin/lapack to
your $PATH.  Then retry orpie, and let me know if that fixes the problem.
