SuSE 6.4 is not something I am able to directly support -- but I _do_ know 
that supporting SuSE 6.4 requires a great deal of modifications to our RPM in 
order to get working.  SuSE 7.1 and 7.2 are much better and much easier to 
support.  However, I can't really expect anyone to upgrade for my 
convenience....

So, if you think you're up to trying to make the existing source RPM rebuild 
cleanly on SuSE 6.4, you have my blessing.  I can help in a limited way -- 
limited because, as I said, I do not possess SuSE 6.4.

And, YES, library versions under Linux distributions are as bad if not worse 
than Windows' 'DLL Hell' is.  Well, at least mostly.  RPM-based Linux 
distributions at least _tell_ you there's a problem.....
