I kept poking at the problem while the list's been down the last couple 
days.  The problem is the boxes module -- if it's input, nothing gets 
output.  If it isn't, MetaPost works fine.

But that's a shame -- it was the boxes package that I most wanted to 
use!  mfpic doesn't provide the boxes functionality, so that doesn't 
help (thanks for the suggestion, though!).  I'm going to be building a 
bunch of diagrams of array manipulations, so easily being able to draw 
bunches of named boxes and setting up arrows between them sounded 
great, even easier (and prettier) than doing it by hand in OmniGraffle.

Has anybody had any recent experience using the boxes module?
