Ah, thank you!  It looks like I didn't configure with the --enable-ofx
and --enable-hbci flags when I built 1.9, as Derek mentioned; for some
reason I expected it to just build in (I didn't see these options in the
README files either).

But from what you're saying, I wouldn't be seeing it anyway due to my
version of libofx.  This is also helpful; I'll see if I can figure out how
to download a usable package from CVS so I can build it (I've got the
instructions around here somewhere...).

Thanks again!
