[FieldTrip] issues compiling matlab code that calls spm and runs a beamformer analysis

I have been attempting to use the MATLAB compile to compile my code and run
it on my university's supercomputer. However, I am running into an issue
when trying to volume normalise the beamformed images I have created.

>From the error messages (see below), the issue arises from an inability to
obtain SPM Revision information. I am using SPM8 and it is on my MATLAB
path so I am unclear how to avoid this error, or whether it relates to: 1)
an issue with my code, 2) what I have on/the order of my MATLAB path, or
with the interface between MATLAB/SPM/FieldTrip. If anyone could suggest a
workaround, or something that may help me to avoid this error I would be
most appreciative.

Note: I read that SPM uses a Contents.m file to indicate Revision number
and that this file becomes Contents.txt when SPM is compiled to a
standalone version but including this file on my MATLAB path both .,m and
.txt versions) did not resolve the error. I am very new to compiling so it
is possible that I did not do this correctly (if this matters at all).

Thanks for any help you can offer, and let me know if any further
information would be helpful to diagnose the problem.
