Re: Two things that got me stumped during compilation from source... (but I won in the end!)

You can get mysterious messages even without those confusing --with-this
--with-that options!

What was the entire ./configure incantation that worked for you?
Perhaps there is something that I just don't realize that I need.

I thought I just needed --without-bdb. I didn't see any explicit
statement of failure, but what I installed (1.4.0) doesn't work.

I was not aware of 'readelf'. Thanks.
