Hi all
Computer: Linux FC8 on Intel P4 processor, DirectX 8 vga video on board  P4i65G
mb, 1 gig memory.

Job: Compiling Scribus 1.3.5
CMake completed well after Yumex found the missing -devel files.
Below are error messages occurring during make.

What does it all mean?
Apart from the above
Scribus 1.3.5 is installed,  fires-up and is about to be put thru it's paces.

Thank you most gratefully to the Scribus Team, I truly appreciate your efforts.
