Thanks for the great software!  I use it constantly.  Thought I’d let you know of a few issues I ran into.  #3 might be pretty easy to fix.


1.       No spaces allowed in the base directory path!   I guess some quotes are missing on variables in the makefiles.  At least this is a “known limitation.”


2.       Configuration process does not check for openssl and x11, which I believe are both required.


3.       APPEND_LIB doesn’t carry through to all the makefiles.


My openssl and x11 libraries are in non-standard locations (not in /usr/X11 or /usr/openssl).

I’ve provided three very trivial patches that I hope will be more illustrative than my typing, but they are probably not production grade. 

I applied them prior to configuration and got a clean build.


Best regards,
