That would help. I'm wondering if it's a problem with old distributions or

I'm also compiling with egcs, and while I don't get any warnings, I
compiled with -Wall. I saw a few that might be problems. If you want,
I'll forward the make.log.

I think it's supposed to be faster. It's probably not a big deal unless we
want to make a small regex fuzzy module. Since we'd have to make some
hacks to get rx-1.9 working, I guess we pass for now.

I'm back Aug 19th, but I have a conference in Boston Aug 23-26 and a
short break from Aug 31-Sep 4 when I probably won't have much 'net access.
(Sheesh, I hadn't realized how soon this is all happening!)

Yes, I saw this. I haven't tried the configure script, but I know it works
once the folder is extracted.
