Same here.

Correct.  I believe my command used 'low' here, but otherwise the same.

This command dumped to STDOUT the statements that would set the 
environment variables.  I had to manually take them and export them.
Doing a 'env' shows they are then part of the enviroment though.
No real problem there.

Yep, recompiled the source.  No problems indicated in compile.
Still no log.
Should this log file be generated immediately?  Only upon errors, etc?

I have followed the steps in the README's and they match with what
you have outlined above.  
Still no luck.
