So why does configure recognizes to which libraries to link to? It corectly uses the libs from lib64 directory. So there must be a way to atomaticaly detect this (I think gcc is already choosing the correct intsall dir automaticaly). But I will have a look at the configure script and tell you if I've found a way... -- Best regards, Richard mailto:r.wirth at wirthware.de
