Hi Christian,

i´ve seen that Falk did you answer already...
concerning which lib is for what...

Could you mail me your ./configure-file??
I think that the variable LEXLIB will not be defined by your
system´s autoconf.
If you would send me this file I try to examine which variable
is used by Slackware 7.x to patch 

Please follow first these steps...
rm config.cache
rm libtool
make -f Makefile.cvs

Then do a ./configure and send me the output too.
Considering @LIBDL@ there should be outputted if -ldl or -lshdl 
is found on your system.

If both of them aren't present you have to install it.



oohhh sveglia.... il mondo e' ammalato, ma x colpa di chi.........
