Gee, if you use *any* of Mandriva, SuSE, Ubuntu or FC5, I think the
only thing you've got to build is SDCC. Perhaps you ought to rethink your distribution choice...
Out of curiousity, what distribution are you using?

Well the problem here is that, the machine is not 'mine'. It appears to be a Redhat 9 setup, and the directive was 'put gnuradio' on the machine... not 'format and
install a new distribution, then install gnuradio'...

Then why would you blame GnuRadio for an ancient OS? On Ubuntu, I had to load SDCC and that was it. I had to BUILD NOTHING. The installations were binary.

No 'blame', just it is not 'clear' when a dependency package is listed, that there are futher dependencies, which add up to a major problem for some setups, even if it is a 'brandnew out of the box' disribution which someone has not had the foresight to load in a large number of
features which at the time of installation, do not seem to be useful.

I also indicated that when I have total control over a machine, I usually will 'update' as well as use a reasonable distribution. However, when asked to install a particular package on a machine which I don't have such control over, I have to work within that limitation.

Just as an aside, what is SDCC... Small Device C Compiler?? and why would that be the obvious missing thing to load in?
