Yes. Sources were downloaded as tar.gz and unpacked in current directory.
Was looking at them today at work to try and find out what the -v option
really did as opposed to the man pages say.

So far after a 10 min look I can see it does this roughly for option -v
	int opt_v = 0
	later... if option is "-v" set opt_v = 1 then	
	if (opt_v && !mount_ncp)
		show version number
I can see that mount_ncp is initialised to 0 initailly but have yet to find 
out what it does and what might set it to 1.

The man pages in the ncpfs source also say that -v has two uses; version number
AND verbose output.
