[EMBOSS] new format EMBL flat files index

I try to make indexes for the release 87 of EMBL with new first line format:

* I downloaded EMBOSS-3.0.0

* gunzip, tar xvf ...

* I replaced the files with the files in the fixes directory

* ./configure --prefix= .... ,make, make install

* I indexed my rel_std_*.dat files (db name: embl) with dbiflat

* I wrote a emboss.default file for embl db (showdb works)

but when I try the seqret application I obtained this output:

 >.1; .1; Human cytomegalovirus strain AD169 complete genome

I tried to index these new files with EMBLNEW format (in place of EMBL) 
as specified in the README file in the fixes directory but it is not a 
valid format.

Does anyone index the new format EMBL flat file successfully?

Thank you for the help
