You need to put the part of interchange.cfg.dist that includes that
into your minivend.cfg file. To use the order management stuff, you
will have to change your order processing to the type used in 
construct/catalog.cfg, and change your checkout page to something
like construct/pages/ord/checkout.html.

[sql-param n] was renamed to [sql-pos n]. In this case, your
are probably better off using [sql-param description].
