[Users] make <config>-utils failing with "RNS" error (ET_2019_03)

Hi. I have a working recent release of the ET (2019_03) that compiles
& runs fine, but which fails when I try to build the associated

>make sim-utils

Building utilities for sim
make[1]: *** No rule to make target
'/nobackupp2/bjkelly1/codes/Cactus/exe/sim/RNS', needed by 'utils'.
Makefile:872: recipe for target 'sim-utils' failed

I'm left with about 50% of the utilities --- basically everything
through "hdf5tobinary_slicer". But "hwloc-assembler" and all the other
hwloc-related utilities haven't built.

I have the ET_2018_03 release on the same machine, and that builds
both the primary executable *and* all the utilities with no issues,
even though the compilation options are identical between the two.

Possibly relevant:

(1) I don't know what the RNS refers to, but I am including the thorn
GSFC_GRMHD_Initial/RNSID in my configuration (both old and new).

(2) One difference between old and new configurations is that I'm not
compiling CactusUtils/SystemTopology, as that gives me link-time
errors with hwloc.
