    > I started Grunch which told me: rexxsyslib was not installed.

    This Grunch message *may* mean that there's no *working* rexxsyslib.library (i.e. m68k one) installed. But I'm not sure about that.

    ...by which everything should have been fine using Grunch. There was no need to manually install yet another rexxsyslib.library from anywhere, then.

    As is documented in various places in the MorphOS Library, if everything is done correctly (either manually or via Grunch), you end up with an m68k rexxsyslib.library in SYS:Libs and a MorphOS-native rexxsyslib.library_disabled (or similar) in MOSSYS:Libs.

    As far as I understand, this wasn't because you installed "an old version" (it's no older than the others), but because it was PowerPacker-compressed and thus caused trouble being loaded in non-uncompressed state by programs using rexxsyslib.library.
