dear GMT supporters

I have compiled ver 5.4.2 with ConfigUser.cmake option "set (LICENSE_RESTRICTED LGPL)"
to explicitly leave out Shewchuk triangulation yet, pscontour seem not to recognize
its new default; it gives me this:

pscontour: unavailable: Shewchuk's triangle option was not selected during GMT installation

can't pscontour use the old default Watson method anymore? (in my prev ver 5.2.1 it did)

thanks for any answer

Problem is that the default triangulation setting (i.e., GMT_TRIANGULATE) remains set to Shewchuk instead of being set to Watson when LICENSE_RESTRICTED is set. The workaround is to manually set

gmt set  GMT_TRIANGULATE Watson

and things will run. I have fixed it in the repository.
