The usual problem when a build procedure complains that a package is
missing when you actually have it installed is that you need the
matching "-devel" package.  The base package just provides the execution
libraries.  You need the development package in order to build new
programs that use those libraries.

Bob Nichols     "NOSPAM" is really part of my email address.
