Whoops! I hit send before typing anything.

If you mean the command line for "configure", then I'm afraid I can't help - I 
can't remember exactly what I did. Typing: --help


--url-prefix                  This URL-trunc will be prepended
                              to the file names generated. Default:
                              file:-URL to images
                              Current value: file:/home/users/davids/XsaPattern/

--thumbnail-url-prefix        This URL-trunc will be prepended
                              to the thumbnail file names generated.
                              file:-URL to thumbnails
                              Current value: 

Note that this is referring to the file URLs, not the "http" ones.

I've just done it, and it is now running and works. I guess it will be in the 
patches which I eventually send to you....
