Optional dependencies were broken in 3.3.0 - Niclas fixed this just
recently.  3.4.0 (svn trunk) solves the issue.  I.e. you need to build
merlin and update your install.

Parameters:

  Advantages
  ----------

    1. lighter weight (basically named value pairs)
    2. easier to verify 
    3. easy to include in magic based block generation

  Disadvantages
  -------------

    1. no support currently available for .xparams
    2. no support for params in target definition

Configuration

  Advantages
  ----------

    1. fully supported in targets

  Disadvantages
  -------------

    1. not supported in magic's block definition stuff

Resolving the above is not a big deal.
