I have had huge problems compiling programs on SuSE. I solved it by
uninstalling the necessary libs and compiling them too. Whan did I last
utter that SuSE be crap? Uh, two weeks ago?

It certainly is not - the problem is YOURS, because you don't use the
well-known and often used linker option "-L /path-to-libs" (may be
specified multiple times). X-related libraries are of course in
/usr/X11R6/lib and not in /usr/lib. Look at Makefiles of any software
out there and learn from others.

1. suse compilation problems (suse 6.1)

out of curiosity has anyone else had problems compiling 3rd party software
under suse (6.1).  For me kernels compile fine, but with other programs
including binutils (i need to compile my own special one to run some m68k
assembly simulators) I get some strange errors.  In particular xmkfm cant
find its template confg file.
i havent supplied any detail here. I'm just wondering if this happens to
other people as it might point me in the direction to fixing the probs.
