I'm not sure about other sites, but here at Los Alamos, all of our capfast symbols
have pproc(<for every link where it matters>) set to NPP, so the change won't affect
us at all.  I think most places using capfast got their symbols from us, so
it should not be a real problem for capfast users.  It is a problem for people
who made their databases directly from dct.
