Thanks. That works, but  _only__ if I comment out a couple of 'major' Western 
European languages.

If not, I get something like :

! Tex capacity exceeded, sorry [pattern memory=65535]

hence my quest to tinker with TRIE_SIZE, which then still gives a capacity 
The comment in TEXMF.CNF next to TRIE_SIZE is the one hat suggests altering 
parameters in TEX.CH which mys system (in lower case!) does not  _seem_  to 
possess ???
