Still following the tutorial for the python version of simfactory:  https://docs.einsteintoolkit.org/et-docs/Pysim_Tutorial_for_New_Users
After "./GetComponents -a http://www.simfactory.org/einsteintoolkit-pysim.th" successfully completes, it says to run "sim setup".  It appears there's a missing file....

% cd Cactus
% cd simfactory
% ./sim setup
Uncaught exception from user code:
	File "udb.pm" not found.
This installation of SimFactory has not been configured.
 at ./sim line 27
% locate udb.pm

(not found)

% cat sim
#! /usr/bin/perl -w
