Does the code that you sent me work in egcs? See further down about

It worked fine after I did a "make distclean; make" in the project
root. Easy fix is just to stop in the configure script unless we can
find the files for libghttp.

Now that would explain it :).

Understood. Should configure be picking out what's good and what's
not? If you don't have time I could update it.
I was trying to figure out what the diffrence between egcs and gcc
where. As near as I can figure egcs became gcc version 2.95 and
higher. Is that right? That would mean I have a newer version. I got
this from the gcc homepage and the egcs freshmeat entry.
I did a check on my other software:
numbers:~$ gtk-config --version
numbers:~$ libtool --version
ltmain.sh (GNU libtool) 1.3.4 (1.385.2.196 1999/12/07 21:47:57)
(latest is 1.3.4 as near as I can figure From fm.net:

numbers:~$ gdb --version

(newest is in CVS, so even if it was 19990929 this is old :)
numbers:~$ xml-config --version
(newest is 2.0.0)
numbers:~$ dpkg -l gtk-doc-tools

Hope this helps...
You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me.
