Trouble never comes alone

Just as I thought I had a temporary resolution to the previous problem with oaCapture, another one gets thrown in my face 🙁

Inclusion of the cfitsio library causes binary portability problems left, right and centre because the libraries have slightly different versions on systems that are otherwise happy to run the same binary.

I think my fix for this is just going to be to reconfigure the build scripts to ignore the FITS library unless it’s forced on the command line or the build is on OSX.  For the time being, binary distributions will just have to do without FITS.  I’ll fix it when I get around to producing proper .deb and .rpm files for each environment.
