That didn't do it for me (still got the same errors) -- this did:

Index: mpi-report.tex
===================================================================
--- mpi-report.tex	(revision 542)
+++ mpi-report.tex	(working copy)

\usepackage[dvips]{color}
\fi

-\usepackage[outerbars,color]{changebar}
+\usepackage[outerbars]{changebar}
\usepackage{xspace}

\include{mpi-macs}

But I am not a latex guru; I may have chosen a non-optimal solution.  Is there a way for latex to determine if "color" is valid with the changebar package?  Maybe something with an \if* kind of construct...?
