Yes, you need to build the slib "cat" file.  Most distros should
do this, but not all do.

This is a known bug.  Please check the archives.  The fix (if you
compile yourself) is to find the string "()" in
src/gnome-utils/dialog-options.c and change it to "'()" (i.e.  add a
single-quote before the two parens).

This fix will be in 1.8.2.
