Re: what to do about "error: cannot set LC ALL locale"?

Ah. Thank you for the unixy enlightenment about echo sumpin' vs just

I've searched through the makefile and there is is no mention of
LC_ALL. There are mentions of locale, but nothing seemingly in
relation to en_US or anything I could identify as meaningful.. Granted
that's not a lot, but since it's nearly all greek to me, it all looks
just fine.

I did a straight ./configure ; make ; make install with no options.
Are there any known options I should be using for Mac OS X 10.2.8 that
I've overlooked?

Thanks again,
