Not being a unix expert I use the following routine when I've had to change
in the past.

1) Install stock circle on the target machine. Run Configure, make sure it
all works.

2) Copy your mud to a different directory. Copy conf.h and sysdep.h from step
1 to
    the directory you have your mud in.

3) Look at the makefile from both and integrate the changes.

4) Fire up your mud and enjoy :-)


Neither sweat, nor blood, nor frustration, nor lousy manuals
nor missing parts, nor wrong parts shall keep me from my task.
