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>
