Linux Slackware version 4 kernel 2.2.6

configure --prefix=/usr/local/grass5 --with-SYSV --with-USE_TERMIO

time: 35 minutes or so on PII 233 MHz 64Meg RAM

Results: /src/paint/Interface and /src/paint/Drivers 
and /src/raster/r.binfer failed with Error 1 (something about no such
file referring to lib.a)

Otherwise simple and the program seems to be running. I have created a
location and imported a sites file. 

The new configure setup is very simple and seems to work very well.

Thanks (from a frustrated 4.2 and 5.0beta person).
