I ran these on my machine and this is what I come up with [... = deleted

mjm> locate libintl
mjm> rpm -qf /usr/include/libintl.h

I do wonder just how much the version numbers coorelate here. Han-Wen,
am I remembering you correctly that you are running Debian? Is the
Mandrake version using an older verion of the glibc-devel?

I feel like I am starting to chase my tail on this one, it really sounds
like what I need to do is to either upgrade to a later version of
Mandrake (8.2 or better), or change to another distribution.

My gut wants to change to Debian, but I have not REAL reason for
abandoning Mandrake, other than to try Debian. Does anyone have
experience with both? Pro's/Con's? Someone on another list basically
told me that his experience with both led him to stick with Debian. He
also had some good things to say about the packages that are available
for Debian.

Anyway, once again, thanks for you help,
