IMHO, if the MetaPost binary has been updated to the latest stable 
release, so should have been all its related files. That's why I'm 
talking about inconsistency: if mpost -v tells me 0.901, I assume that 
all the features of v0.901 are available - which does not happen to be 
the case, at least in my installation (I might have messed up something).

Does anyone know whether this a bug - maybe an i-Package specific one? 
Or, maybe, a conflict with ConTeXt, which I have installed, too?
