OK, so in order to attempt to diagnosis this on my own I figured I would
compile it and see which errors were reported and (hopefully) that would
tell me which library is misbehaving. So I ran "./configure" and
received the following output:

checking for main in -lgal... Unknown library `gal'
configure: error: gal library not found. See the README and config.log
for more info.

However, I have gal's installed all over the place:

[user at loclahost]~(8:39am)[71]->rpm -qa | grep gal

How do I tell configure to use one of these installed libgal's? I'm kind
of behind the gun here as I need to balance my accounts, so any help
would be greatly appreciated.
