checking where the gettext function comes from... libc
checking for main in -lsocks5... no
configure: error: cannot find -lsocks5 library
[jason at nibbler lftp-4.7.2]$

ive looked and cant seem to figure out where to download the libsocks 
stuff? I found 1 post on the innernets that said that its integrated in 
the kernel?
How can I get this compiled with socks(5) support?
