Ok. But remember to reply to all parties in the message. This will
provide your more help because a copy reaches the mailing list (in this
case the GSASL mailing list). I'm doing it for you.

This is called the "standard autoconf vodoo": 

>> ./configure; make; make install.

Rembember to run ./configure --help to get especific options from the
project you are compiling..

This is because your system already has a GSASL installation. Check
which is the gsasl command you are running:

>> which gsasl

This should provide you the path to the gsasl binary you are using
(which should like /usr/bin/gsasl). 

If you didn't provide any additional option to your ./configure then it
is likely your newest gsasl installation is located
under /usr/local/bin/gsasl.

You'll have to configure your environment (PATH variable) to use
binaries from your desired locations. This is a bit long and depends on
your configuration. Spend some time reasearching how to configure this
(it will give you valuable).
