I appreciate the feedback: my chainline is off by about 1-1.5 mm, so not perfect but pretty close.
*new*guy: not sure what you mean by 'rotating the flats on the axles?' -I found that by pulling the wheel back by hand, then letting the rotation of the bolts as I tighten them pull the wheel to the desired tension, it came out pretty well...should I be tightening it down finger-tight, then rotating the hub with my hand, then 'locking-down' the allen bolts?
OnTheRivet: I've got a steel lemond and wondered if I should rough-up the dropouts a bit with a file (probably removing paint as well)...maybe I will try that.
I don't know if it's a good idea or not, but I also wondered about putting some gritty washers between the bolts and frame might help as well?
