You are almost certainly correct - I did not have time to deal with this

Hm - you are probably right - DeinoMPI is the culprit, not EPD. The
build error was from mpi4py of course. I will look into the cfgs.

Great - thanks again. I'm not inexperienced with software make/build
tools in other contexts but Python internals and distribution tools are
still somewhat new to me; I appreciate everyone's interest.
