I'm already including "-disable-gui" in the config line.

Not more than 15 minutes after I sent this out - one of the "sys admin
types" suggested that I should have used "CFLAGS=-m32" instead of just

I tried it with that - and it worked correctly!

I think we're good to go now.


As to the version - the co-worker who did the initial development spent
almost 2 months going back and forth trying different things and finally
learned that the newer version that was on our Linux boxes was causing
the problem. When she moved back to 2.2.12 it worked fine.


The application we're trying to enable hasn't been updated in several
years - so that's probably why it has problems with the newer version.

Here's what I think were the relevant lines from the config.log:

BTW, 2.2.12 is very old now, current release is 2.3.0
