On Mandrake, either there's a command that I've never heard of named
"this", or there's a bug in configure/makefile.  This occurs after I do my
best to correct the 'no rule to make target ../bin/circle' problem....

And there seems to be something very strange about the way the standard
include files are coded for.  I have them, they're in the usual places
(/usr/include and subdirs).  And sometimes they're even found...
Sometimes.  limits.h, for example, is right there - but during make, I get
a whole bunch of errors complaining that it cannot be found - sandwiched
between the "success" messages...  for limits.h!

I'll put one more day into this - does anyone have a makefile that's known
to work that they can send me?

All I really wanted to do was run a small MUD for my family and friends -
this is starting to get deep.  I get quite enough seriously buggy code at
work, thanks.

Due to the amazing (and disgusting) amount of unsolicited email  (spam) we
have been receiving, site-wide email filters have been  installed at Exact details of how this has been  configured will not be
disclosed (I don't want the darned spammers  to figure workarounds), but I
will say that mail from .tw and .kr  domains is bounced without exception.
If this makes PacRim folks  unhappy, get those open relays fixed, folks!
