And that prompted me to go take a look in /var/cache/apt/archives, and 
its there, showing as version 0.0.22_all.deb, dated 8 August 2011, which 
would have to about the time this install was done, from a customized 
version of wheezy compiled by the linuxcnc guys as an installer .iso.

I still have the last 2 such LCNC installer iso's, but its not listed in 
the TOC of either iso. I think that means I did install it, but there 
been a few trillion gallons of water down the West Fork River since and 
I've no recollection at this late date.  Its disabled by an option it 
its config. so I'll do it.  And see what problem I was trying to fix 
comes back. :)
