Very welcome and timely.

Thank you Markus, I have just completed the downloads and was getting ready to 
test things when I got this.

In an attempt to install keramik recently I was required to update libstdc++ 
and without realizing what the result might be, I went ahead and -Uvh. Things 
seem to be working OK ( except keramik did not hence this awesome update), 
but I won't trust in luck again and will follow your advise.

Thanks again team, :o)=
