Hi Kristian.  Terry Norbraten reports that he has kept the ODE drivers
up-to-date in the alternate version of Xj3D maintained by NPS.  So that
should run the examples bundled in in Xj3D codebase and converted in
the examples archive.  I hope that is the case.  If not, perhaps we
can help troubleshoot further to restore this important capability.
