problems building Genbank (GCG)

As a newcomer to SRS I ran into problems building the indices for
GenBank (GCG format).
I'm using SRS 5.1.0 on IRIX 6.4. The GenBank release is 104 (12/97), as
obtained from GCG.

I tried to modify genbank.i to switch from EMBL to GCG format.
srsbuild -info genbank seems to work fine.
srsbuild -w genbank gives the following:

> ...processing GENBANK
> ...processing /u04/gcggenbank/gb_ba.ref
> ...processing /u04/gcggenbank/gb_ba.seq
> Entry name mismatch:  ref=A16SRRNA, seq=
But I can't see anything wrong with the file headers:

> % head /u04/gcggenbank/gb_ba.ref
> >>>>A16SRRNA  7/97
> X87617 Actinomycete (genus unknown) 16S ribosomal RNA. 7/97
> ....
> % head /u04/gcggenbank/gb_ba.seq
> >>>>A16SRRNA  7/97  2BIT  Len: 1497
> X87617 Actinomycete (genus unknown) 16S ribosomal RNA. 7/97

This problem did not occur when building the SwissProt indices.

Any suggestions? Thanks!
