Well, the compile problem has gone -- I didn't file a bug, thought it 
best to wait a few days.
What did happen that in some way took care of the problem was that I did 
a 'yum update' on my FC5, and along with the cups, cups-devel updates, 
it said that due to a dependency, cups-devel needed gnutls-devel(!), so 
that was installed. Perhaps cups-devel changed something recently(?).

So the compile went OK, it installed OK, but the 25 May 2006 build of 
1.3.4cvs gave me a message at startup, saying that some of the plugins 
did not install properly, "propably(sic) due to dependency problems".
