MoL does not link

At some point, the function CCTK_VError got changed to CCTK_VERROR in CactusNumerical. The flesh still seems to only have CCTK_VError. As a result, MoL creates an implicit function and refuses to link. The problem seems to start here:

    It seems the code committed uses features proposed in #1939, which didn't make it into the main code yet.

    I looked to see if I should just revert one of the commits, but it seems that a large number of commits depend on these changes. I can't immediately see which new macros are causing problems. When I build, PunctureTracker complains about CCTK_VINFO and CCTK_VERROR, but CCTK_VINFO seems to have been in use for a while. I think that if I start reverting things, I'll cause more problems. So it's probably best to wait for Erik.

    In case it's not clear, the ET master branch currently does not build.

    My apologies for breaking things. I had not realized that these functions were not available yet in the flesh. I am using a respective branch of the flesh that has these changes already included.
