I still can't reproduce this error. If I remove the build directory
completely, and then do configure and "make install" into a temporary
directory, it still works. All installation instructions also say that
you should first do make, followed by make install, although I can't
figure out why a plain "make install" does not work in your case. But
if "make; make install" works for you as well, I think that disabling
the whole template from compilation is a far too drastic measure.
Because if it is not compiled (as was the case until quite recently),
it easily gets out of date with respect to the rest of the code, and
takes much more effort to fix when you no longer know which commit
broke it.
