 	Yes  it did help .  But again another symbol is missing .  This one 
seems to be in the tls libraries .

 	I'd like to suggest that the maintainer of the configure.in start 
checking for these symbols or AT LEAST the appropriate versions of the libraries 
these symbols reside in .  The checking is obviosly not being done correctly or 
completely .  As both of these symbols have been caught during compile time not 
during the checking that configure does .

 	Also Please remember not every system out there is able to be deeply 
upgraded at many of its library levels .

 	I remember having to dig out missing symbols back when I managed a 
Ultrix system (on a uVax) trying to get pppd and tools to compile .  And just 
about any other tool I wanted on that system .  But heck that was back in 1990 
(and a little later) .  Then a little bit after that as Linux began being the 
one OS I tended to lean toward .  But most packages have progressed very nicely 
since then & I have not had to even think about these types of difficulties in 
some many years .

 	But I do have to admit this system needs a to the roots upgrade .  Which 
I am working toward ,  But even that's getting a tad slowed down .
 	Sorry about the rant .
 	Please take that suggestion to heart tho .
