There isn't a --without-howl, only a --with-howl to set the howl directory. I guess if you set the directory to somewhere that it isn't it's not going to find it. The debian howl never worked anyway... I had to build my own package to fix the more obvious problems with it. I doubt the detection will find a working howl whatever happens. Tony
