Hi Tim,

    Yeah, I looked at that option, and I'm just not ready to get into 
that kind of mess.  There surely has to be another reason for this 
problem, as others have built the software without so many library 
problems, however that may be due to them using earlier versions of RH 
or distros, and earlier compilers.  Time for more research I guess...
