Fixed (by updating uncommitted pkgsrc, building a binary package,
installing it, and running).

Thank you for (correctly) updating the version; it's very unfriendly to
packaging systems to ever replace named content, even if the old one is
broken.

I am not really clear on what's going on, but default search paths tend
to lead to installed things.  libtool does gyrations to avoid getting
installed versions of a package's libraries.  Basically, in package foo
with libfoo, the link of program foo has to be against the newly-built
libfoo, not the old installed one, and the "make check" run has to use
it.  I don't really get the subtleties of how this translates to python,
but it feels like that problem.

The old one had a stylesheet that made the table of connected nodes have
colors for connected/not, and made the table feel like a table that was
easy to read.  This feels like ascii art, and while I'm old-school (1200
baud modem was a big setp up, 4 times as fast and no acoustic
coupler!!), it's over my threshold, which means it will draw complaints
