Dear Forum,

I just downloaded and built Gap 4.4.12 (Mac OS X, 10.6.4, Dual Quad Xeon).  I tried to get help, and got the following:

gap> ?QuaternionAlgebra
Error, Rebuild completion files! (Crc value of
"./lib/helpdef.gi" does not match.) at
HELP_BOOKS_INFO.(bnam) := HELP_BOOK_HANDLER.(handler).ReadSix( stream );

I'm kind of clueless at this point.  Brand new installation, from a newly downloaded tarball.
