If this is all you specified (meaning you didn't specify a thornlist),
Cactus creates a thornlist from everything there is. Usually you either
use simfactory (sim build --thornlist=<FILE>) or
  make WaveDemo THORNLIST=<FILE>

Which thornlist did you add this to? If this was not the one inside the
'configs' directory, Cactus ignored this and continues the (now)
existing thornlist there (because again you didn't specify the changed
thornlist on the command line).

Does this help?
