egcs? I did not reinstall that, just glibc and linuxinc.

Not for netpbm, he said.

I did not have a /usr/include/linux even after reinstalling linuxinc.
Maybe I goofed somehow. It works now that I made the link.

I will try to find one. The shared libraries were built by default for
libjpeg and libpng. I think for zlib there was a 'configure' (Not at
that computer now).

SW81 full glibc, everything else SW71. I tried to use SW81 glibc-so and
SW71 full glibc and thoroughly messed up BL and had to start over.
To switch compilers do I need gcc-2.95.3 and gcc-g++-2.95.3? Anything
else from SW81?
What do you mean by development libraries?
I am not compiling for stock BL2 but for upgraded to glibc 2.2.5, which is
what I needed for Opera or precompiled xpdf or precompiled curl and

The ones I wanted did compile. I have little idea what most of the others
