1: delete the .hugin file in my home directory.
2: emerge -C hugin and autopano-sift-C
3: re-emerge hugin, then re-emerge hugin and autopano-sift-C
4: tried to use the autopano-sift package with all its children.
5: emerge -C autopano-sift and go back to autopano-sift-C
6: pestered the stew out of Google. Tried other settings they
recommended with no help.
As I said, it worked the first couple times. Anybody have a clue why it
stopped? I would think if it was a bad setting on my part that deleting
the .hugin file would fix that.
In preferences I have autopano-sift-c for the command and --maxmatches
%p %o %i for the options. That is the default values.
