Cool-- that's great that those all work... the guile.spec from Redhat
(which I migrated to guile-1.3.2) does the guile and guile-devel
separation so users can just instead guile instead of guile + all the
support header files, etc.

A Perl module that you need if you want to rebuild the documentation
from scratch. will let you find it (or there are copies
under dev-support on the ftp sites and the web page).

The problems with the Java directories were harmless... I dropped Java
from the build but only did a partial job of it... you shouldn't need
Java at all.

The bigger problem is a mismatch of your g++ compiler version with
mine.  I'm using the one that came with RH6.0-- egcs-2.91.66.

Yep... the linker seg-faulting is definitely a bug in the linker. I'd
upgrade to the latest g++ (gcc-2.95, maybe?) and try Cassowary and GTL
again.  If you still get an ld seg-fault, be sure to report the bug to
the appropriate folks.

I'll update the cassowary distribution sometime tomorrow with what might
be a slightly improved version for not-exactly-the-same C++ compilers.

Please update me with your progress-- I *really* appreciate your trying
these rebuilds out!
