Well... it appears I am in serious need of a fresh batch of the "Super 
Strong Extra" frog pills myself. :-/

Don't ask me how or why I completely messed up here, that will be food 
for the psychiatrist; I have an inkling but that is for another time.

Your bewilderment was completely right and I got the full bucket of cold 
water on my head the moment when I /really/ tested with a new granite 
include file. As you can guess ("I told you so") it did not work.

So, after having flogged myself almost senseless, I guess the following 
lines should replace the offensive ones in the macro:

#ifndef (Granite_file)  #local Granite_file = "DakotaRedGranite.inc"  #end
#include Granite_file

Also, to make successive calls of the macro more comprehensive (for 
now), add the following line in section 7:

#undef Granite_file

This seems to work correctly, at least for me. Hope it does for you too 
of course.

Yeah... my sleeves are full of holes and I often get pretty blind to 
them... ;-[
