Dear All,

My previous problem installing GRASS5.0pre1 was solved by installing 
the zlib-devel package. Prior to that I only had the standard zlib 
library on my system.  Now it installs fine.  Thanks to Glynn for 
helping me out!

A tip for Mandrake users: prior to compiling GRASS5pre1 on my system 
I was using the precompiled binary version.  While using this I 
encountered a problem with NVIZ - it couldn't find the libtk8.3.so.1 
and libtcl8.3.so.1 libraries.  This is beacuse on Mandrake 8.0 these 
files are called libtk8.3.so and libtcl8.3.so.  Creating symbolic 
links to these with the names GRASS wants sorts the problem.
