v.support, v.digit & v.to.rast - DOES NOT WORK ON A RS/6000?

Did you compile them as well? Just installing them where they belong
isn't enough. The library modification must be installed and compiled first,
then the modules (v.to.rast, v.support) have to be installed and them
compiled (after the libraries are compiled). 
|Well, I last night I downloaded EVERYTHING in the grass4.0.fixes
|directory on moon.  I installed the files where the .message file
|said to put them.  If you run v.support on any file that you created 
|through v.digit, you get an out of memory error and the program bombs.
|If you run v.to.rast, you get an empty raster file.  BTW: You can only
|get v.to.rast to run without bombing if you haven't run the topology
|part in v.support.  If you run v.support you get an out of memory error
|and the program bombs.  
|Another problem...How do you use v.digit anyway?  All I want to do is
|digitize some (OK a bunch) polygons, save them as "Labled Areas" and then
|rasterize them.  My polygons consist of a single line (many segments), and
|when I try to close the ends using EDIT - "snap line to point" it will add
|a line segment from an end node to the frame that borders the dig area.
|Are all of these problems related to the fact that I have an RS/6000?  Has
|anyone got This vector stuff working on the RS?
