that sos package is certainly something, didn't know there was one!
It turned out that ips is written by the same person who wrote phyloch,
so the latter must have been an alpha version of the former. The raxml
function worked from ips worked fine -- just a matter of defining the
parameters now -- and the installation was smooth, although I had to
pre-install the ubuntu package |libxml2-dev|.
Thank you for your help,
