FWIW: the address of pari is not
(it is Bordeaux in France, not one of the 50+ in the US :-) but it goes directly
to Karim, not to the ML, so avoid using it.

What happens is that you do not have dlopen (or at least PARI does not find it),
so install is not available. dotest check for install working but addii failing,
not install failing, so it complains.

But PARI is working properly on your system.
