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 

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.....
