Hello Bernard,

I am not quite sure what could cause this. The RNS utility in the
Einstein Toolkit is part of einsteininitialdata/Hydro_RNSID is your
thorn the same or a older / modified version of that thorn?

I am not sure how SystemTopology itself could be responsible, however
removing it from the thornlist may have triggered a CST run which may
have uncovered a previously existing issue.

I would try the following:

1. try if "make sim-cleandeps" helps
2. if you have *moved* the RNSID thorn I would go for a full rebuild
from scratch
3. if you have not moved it (and even  if you have) I'd have a look at
the thorns make.configuration.deps file and check if it hard-codes the
name of the thorn or arrangement. Also check in make.configuration.defn
for the names of the utilities (defn not deps this time).
