Assistance with my install - BML problem

I'm trying to get the LJ code running on my server (I have an HTML "coming soon" page up there for the time being) and I've run up against a brick wall.

I'm getting only [Error: Undefined custom element 'PAGE'] if I try and display any BML page. The server is working properly, as you can see by the above link to the HTML page, but if you go directly to a BML page you can see what I mean. (And yes - before you ask, I did RTFM, all of sections II and III; I didn't get any hints.)

I'm running with almost exactly what's in CVS - the only changes I've made are to ljconfig.pl, and not many at that (here's a diff). Thus, as best I understand it, I'm not using "ljcom" as was suggested by xb95 in my last post - that's only for site-specific customizations, yes?

I don't have an htdocs/_config-local.bml, and my htdocs/_config.bml is unmodified, and therefore has DefaultScheme bluewhite at the top - and cgi-bin/bml/scheme/bluewhite.look is where it belongs.

Everything that I've tried seems to check out. I've tried running several of the Perl files at the command line (and they all work); I've tried getting new code from CVS and re-running the initialization routines listed in the documentation; I've pored over the Perl code and tried to back-trace to see what the matter could be (but I'm not getting too far on that front). I'm not even sure what else I should be looking at, at this point. Help?? :)

The server is SuSE 9.1, running Apache 2.0.49 as the main port-80 webserver, and it is reverse proxying for the Apache 1.3.33 server (built from the mod_perl 1.29 source) at port 8011 (which is working, but you can bypass it by specifying the port number). Please let me know if you can suggest anything else for me to look at.
