[sword-devel] X11 install mgr question?

I was wondering if it was possible to compile it atm?  there's some 
issues with the Make stuff in the apps/X11 dirs, with the InstallMgr 

c++  -g -O2  -o installmgr  main.o callbacks.o MainFrm.o 
-L../../../../lib -lVCL -lSM -lICE -L/sw/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lgtk 
-lgdk -lgmodule -lglib -ldl -lintl -lXext -lX11 -lm ../intl/libintl.a 
-lsword -L ../../VCL -lz
/usr/bin/ld: -L: directory name missing
make[2]: *** [installmgr] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2

at one stage, putting a nasty space after the "-L" flag...  anyway, 
editing that to be fine still has issues with VCL, cause in the VCL 
directory I don't know how to compile it, or do whatever you're meant to 
do with it?  the Makefile in there just points you back to the base dir 
of sword.......  did a fresh cvs co and it still doesn't seem all that 
happy, altho this may be cause the x11 install mgr is old, and no longer 
works, or I'm just too tired to make things work?

thanks for listening to my ramblings yet again...  :)  all your info and 
updates re the windows frontend makes me want to have access to a 
windows box to give it a go, but shall stick to my linux and mac...  :)  
FYI I gave it a go under WINE the other day, and it didn't fail all that 
badly...  tis all wine's fault, of course!  ;)

love ybic
