that is indeed one way to do it. and it actually got the make to
finally work. many thanks.
i'll be checking with red hat on monday to see if there is something
funky about libexpat libraries in 5.4.
also will be checking with the gamma software people to see if there is
something in that library that is needed or not.
many thanks to all that replied.
