You mean messing with individual Makefiles and finding which LDFLAGS 
points where and manually adjusting them? Hmmm... I could do that in 
principle but it would take much time so if there are instructions on 
which specific Makefile needs adjusting then I will do it.

I am surprized that my system is considered "too new". It is a very 
conservative one based on Fedora Core 6 of ages ago...

Kind regards
