linux configure shell script error
I am a newbie to Linux but not a newbie to programming. I am trying to install exVim for Fedora 12, and one of the add-ons is source-highlight. I downloaded the tarball and started to install. I keep getting the following error:
"configure: error: Could not link against !"
This is happening while the boost libraries are being validated. I have isolated it to the following line in the configure script:
"for libextension in 'ls $BOOSTLIBDIR/libboost_regex*.so* $BOOSTLIBDIR/libboost_regex*.a* 2>/dev/null | sed 's,.*/,,' | sed -e 's;^lib\(boost_regex.*\)\.so*$;\1;' -e 's;^lib\(boost_regex.*\)\.a*$;\1;'` ; do"
I am assuming it is testing the integrity of the libraries, but I don't know sed well enough to figure out what it is doing. Any help would be very appreciated.
