Oops, I'm sorry for causing this problem. Actually, this package was
obsolete since 2005 but back then I couldn't remove it since our SS
version did not support removals at that time. When I was adding some
stuff a couple of days ago I noticed these ancient versions and decided
to nuke them, not thinking anyone relied on those. Sorry for that.

Even better, it should make it into the FFI initialization itself.
