Oops... My apologies! I haven't even looked in ControlExample.d yet. 
That'll teach me for putting my foot in my mouth.  I had a peek in 
dsss.conf, and apparently I missed seeing the -J switch.  Ironically 
enough, the images still aren't working in my current build of the 
controlexample binary.  So much for that.

Okay.  Not likely to happen.  Unfortunately, gdc is currently the only 
way anything will ever get ported to other platfroms besides linux and 
win32.  Because of this, I want to see things working with gdc at some 
point, though doing so may be more of a handicap than it's worth.
