Well, Craig, Andreas and I tried just about everything we could think
of; ./configure shows everything as okay, but the compiler didn't like
two things. Working on what those two things are.
Used export QTDIR=/usr/lib64/qt-3.3 ln -s lib lib64 from
QTDIR and ./configure --enable-libsuffix=64
Other programs, like Inkscape work fine at 64-bit, along with
thunderbird, firefox, etc.
I'll try the --with-extra suggestion next... have to run now.
Thanks to all for hanging in here with me and AMD64, FC4. I'm just about
ready for dual-core, 939 socket, which I have on two boxes here. Linux
should handle the dual core okay, I'm sure. <smile>
