libstd++-dev problem when configuring


I'm running RH9, i'm trying to get a prog called bibletime running. after the .tar is decompressed, i try to configure and this is what is at the end of the verbose config output.
----------------------------------------------------------------
configure: error: Your Installation isn't able to compile simple C++ programs.
Check config.log for details - if you're using a Linux distribution you might miss
a package named similiar to libstd++-dev.
----------------------------------------------------------------
I googled it and found different things as to what libstd++-dev. is. What do I really need to go on here? Thanks.

"I googled it and found different things as to what libstd++-dev. is. What do I really need to go on here?"

I think that the package is actually called libstdc++-dev. the first thing to do is see if you have libstdc++-dev installed with:
rpm -qi libstdc++-dev

If you do not have libstdc++-dev installed then install it from your Red Hat install CD.

"checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!"

This message is so vague that it is meaningless. I suggest that you contact the developer, Martin Gruner, and ask him to give you a list of bibletime dependencies.

The bibletime project page is at:
http://freshmeat.net/projects/bibletime/

I deciphered Martin Gruner's email address at freshmeat and I think that it is:
mg.pub@gmx.dot
