It is difficult to diagnose these missing function problems if you are
not familiar with the package. A lot of the admb functions were not
extended (yet?) to the RE package. anyway what is missing is the function

  df1b2vector pow(const df1b2vector& v,const df1b2variable & x)

Probably the most elegant work around is to define your own
and put it in the GLOBALS_SECTION to make it available.

stick this at the bottom of the tpl file.


  #include <admodel.h>
  #include <df1b2fun.h>
  #include <adrndeff.h>

  df1b2vector pow(const df1b2vector& v,const df1b2variable & x)
    int mmin=v.indexmin();
    int mmax=v.indexmax();
    df1b2vector tmp(mmin,mmax);
    for (int i=mmin;i<=mmax;i++)
    return tmp;

Also in the version of the program I saw you are missing a ";"
in the line above.
