Hi Emily and Mark,

Sorry for later notice this information. I guess the Lina means me.

The issue could be fixed by
regenerating the configure script with autoreconf version 2.13
(on a Debian (Squeeze) box). 

Any further questions please let me know. Last time I asked a computer
geek to help me fix it and I also let him post the solutions for the
record (Please check the gmx-users Digest, Vol 72, Issue 18.).

Happy weekend,
