[Rivet] make check failure

Hi Hendrik, 

sorry, I forgot to mention.  I did make sure that the PYTHONPATH is 
pointing to a meaningful location.  So, I did "make install" before make 

The rivet module is also missing if I simply type $RIVET_PREFIX/bin/rivet 
from some location. 

Any clue?  (I'm running Ubuntu Jaunty)

Cheers, Stefan
