Well, damn.  That was too easy.  I was going through all that
export/import stuff because I figured that's what I would have to do to
keep from bringing a bunch of old cruft with me.  Never occurred to me
that all I had to do was move the files over.  Spent too much time moving
database systems around I guess.

Thanks for your help.
