Thanks for the reply Dieter.  Working with heterogenous distributed systems
proves to me time and again that there are more software/hardware variations
than I could imagine.  The machines without xml.dom.ext are machines one which I
can compute (Condor) but have only local temporary storage so I'll need to find
a way to pass the module along with my distributed job.
