Hello Brad,

I finally got some respite from things to look at your test not working
and the patch you had to apply. I am attaching  a patch for configure.ac
(and assorted build files) in CppAD that should be able to detect ADOL-C
correctly once ADOL-C-2.2 is compiled and installed. No further patching
inside ADOL-C should be required.
With this patch I was able to compile CppAD and the test you mentioned,
however it aborts with a nan value somewhere. Now unfortunately I don't
understand CppAD enough to figure out what is happening there. Perhaps
using the ADOL-C tapedocs to generate a listing of the tape generated by
this program to see if it is consistent would be an idea?
