I'm working on the upgrade (corporate red tape) but if anyone has ideas on how to make 5.5 work, I'd appreciate hearing 
them.

I read Manuel Pelaez' 7/20 post in the ISC Diary "Do you have rogue 
Internet gateways in your network? Check it with nmap", tried it and 
found I didn't have ip-forwarding.nse. Downloaded it, and now I'm 
getting -

Starting Nmap 5.50 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2013-07-22 14:32 EDT
NSE: failed to initialize the script engine:
/usr/share/nmap/nse_main.lua:378: 
/usr/share/nmap/scripts/ip-forwarding.nse:39: variable 'SCRIPT_NAME' is not declared stack traceback:
        [C]: in function 'assert'
        /usr/share/nmap/nse_main.lua:378: in function 'new'

        /usr/share/nmap/nse_main.lua:990: in main chunk
        [C]: ?

QUITTING!

Where is this declaration to be made? In scripts.db?

Hello Richard,

Please note that the output you coupied suggests that you're running Nmap 5.50. It's outdated; please try again with 
the latest version of Nmap and let us know if the problem persists.

Yours,
Jacek Wielemborek
