Yes, even the documentation included with IC is out-of-date. Hint: 
anything in the docs that refers to a file in the legacy directory can 
be omitted.

I got the same error.

The problem with the script is this line (note: there were other 
problems in the script where the files were wrongly named, at least in 
my 4.9.8 version [no cvs]):
'DirConfig vars'

According to the Wiki docs, that should be:
'DirConfig Variable vars'

Once I changed that and restarted, it worked!
