We have surveyed, with recalculation where required, existing empirical and RGM-derived local d−4He potentials in order to identify, in empirically derived potentials, features predicted by RGM. Qualitative consistency emerges, but the energy dependence of the Majorana central component of the d+4He interaction, as determined by inversion of RGM S-matrix, suggests a ratio of even-l to odd-l central potential (expressed in terms of volume integrals) of about 1.5 at Elab=10 MeV. The value of this ratio extracted from empirical potentials is much lower.
