i am using a NetGear Mobile adapter with NG's driver. i have also tried
running spybot S&D in "dead mode" - a completely scan-of-the-drive only mode

another thing that I do have is the _windows_ firewall... i have no way
of removing that (sans for going back to 98, OC...) though I can DISABLE
it to some extent (when it says "something is trying to talk to the net!
 i'm gonna block it until you say otherwise!" i tell it to unblock and
go away)... i doubt this is the culprit though i have no Way of Testing

one note is that when i try to build on my main WinXP machine (never
touches the net etc.) i get the same results. i have disabled the
Windows Firewall by using GoAwaySP2Firewall.. this however does not make
life any simpler..

is this an issue with the configure script or make?
