I might investigate porting the CVS maybe ... but probably not. Its what I
run on my machine ... but I dont think everyones going to be begging for the
new features in the CVS just yet...

umm that works... - the ./configure contains sed thingies which
replace -lintl with blank in LIBS ... which I thought was what was causing
the problem in the first place... but I guess that rules that out... -
unless sed s/-lintl// only replaces one occurence... hmmm i really should
learn some of these things sometime...

guess I might try that next time - but think I will leave it as is for the
moment. - unless I need to make a significant amount of change to make it
acceptable anyway ...
