Of course you would. I thank you very much for trying the gift which
is doubtlessly due to David and Henning being down under :-).

A quick fix should be that you add /usr/local/lib to your 

Another (much nicer :-) ) fix is that you try getting the current
development version from CVS on

The advantage for me: I can release 0.1.6, if it works at your place,
as some compiling problems like yours kept me from releasing it (they
are probably fixed now).

The advantage for you:
1) you really have the newest stuff possible.
2) no fiddling with LD_LIBRARY_PATH, as I have learnt a lot more about
   libtool in the meantime.

To get things from CVS surf to:

...and click on the link CVS repository, which brings you to:

Now Follow the instructions on that page for anonymous CVS:

cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/gift login 

(press enter instead of password)

cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/gift co gift

Then it takes a little while, and you will be informed which files are
downloaded into the directory "./gift".

Things should compile without having you fiddle around with
anything. Please tell me (or bug-gift, that is), if this does not

While I hope setting the environment solves your problem, I hope I
have motivated you to use the CVS and help me debugging :-)
