I'm not a python programmer but am familiar with

I can't find anyway of turning these on with ./configure, so

debugging with the application run.
I don't know that the app needs to know the the RefTotal, so
I'd be happy to have it switched off. Alternately I don't
understand the various defines in SpecialBuilds.txt and how
they interact. Can I get the app to run without the
