Crystal Space, a 3D graphical development package. There is a Ubuntu set
of packages that is really out of date and carried a disclaimer that one
of the three dnload packages is an earlier version. After several
hundred megs of dnload that set blows up. So, I'm using the current
versioning version and doing the ./configure bit gives me that error.
I've never seen that one before. Thanks for any considerations, Ric
