(Firstly, apologies for sending to the wrong list last time; I just noticed)

I think I have got it.  It is probably the fact that I hadn't installed bison; 
it was using byacc.  (Mandrake doesn't seem to install much as part of its 
development group does it)

I have it rebuilding now; and will get back if that hasn't sorted it.
