A quick note from a Linux Mandriva 2006.0/i586 system:

* The Suse binary runs happily now that I have created two symlinks
   that were missing on my machine:

   /usr/lib/libWand.so /usr/lib/libWand.so.6
   /usr/lib/libMagick.so /usr/lib/libMagick.so.6

* Source compilation for 0.992 was fine as well (0.991 failed in libICU)

Greetings and keep up the good work!
