adding a toc.ncx file to the .prc package

I've been unable to get the Amazon kindlegen.exe program to work. However, I know that the Amazon Kindle Previewer works fine with prc files I've created using MobiPocket Creator. However my one hang-up is that Kindle looks for a toc.ncx file in addition to the toc.html file that suffices for MobiPocket Reader. The Kindle UserGuide explains that the toc.ncx is incorporated into the eventual prc/mobi file by two lines of code added to the opf file before the "build". To the "manifest" section is added <item id="toc" media-type="application/x-dtbncx+xml" href="toc.ncx"/> and the "spine" tag is adjusted with this attribute: <spine toc="toc">. Having added this code to the opf file, Mobipocket Creator won't "build" a prc/mobi file. It hangs. Does anyone know how to get around this problem?
