Yes, I saw that.

I am not sure of what you are doing.

What platform are you trying to build this on?

What version of the 1.2.2 cvs are you building, the 'About' has a date and
number. The last one I made was dated 9 Jul

What happens if you do a ./configure --prefix=~/progs and forget all about
the libdirs etc?

You should write down 'longish' messages as they are likely to help, it
may have said something like "Make sure you have your profiles path set in
the Preferences" So are your preferences set correctly, you don't say so
in the above (I think)
