Ok, i've downloaded, and ungzipped the dbmalloc library from
George's web page,
i've followed the README.Linux and README as suggested
  (had to remove the code the first time, because i read the wrong README
    first :-P )
I get all the way to the   'make install' part (see README.Linux why)
and it gives me this output
[Ascension v1.0] [8:33pm]:~/dbmalloc: make install
rm -f /usr/local/lib/libdbmalloc.a.old
mv -f /usr/local/lib/libdbmalloc.a /usr/local/lib/libdbmalloc.a.old
mv: /usr/local/lib/libdbmalloc.a: No such file or directory
make: [/usr/local/lib/libdbmalloc.a] Error 1 (ignored)
cp libdbmalloc.a /usr/local/lib/libdbmalloc.a
cp: cannot create regular file `/usr/local/lib/libdbmalloc.a': Permission
make: *** [/usr/local/lib/libdbmalloc.a] Error 1

any help would be appreciated as to how to go about setting this up,
and after that, what do i do with the malloc.h file, and how do
i make use of it? (or is it auto?)
