To fix this, replace each instance of "tail +2" with "tail -n +2" in
the GNUmakefile.  I think that a patch for this is coming soon, if not

This was apparently a screwup on my part; my "timing" include file didn't
seem to be right; replacing it with the one from the Molpro source tree
fixed the problem.
