btg configure problem

Hi all
I was trying to to configure BTG 0.9.5 (bit torrent daemon with various front-ends with CLI and GUI front-ends. I'm runnig debian etch (2.6.18). So i installed necessary packages for btg and begin to configure it. As a result i got:

configure: Link test, compiler flags: -pthread -I/usr/include -I/usr/include
configure: Link test, linker flags :
-lboost_iostreams -lboost_filesystem -lboost_date_time
-lboost_thread -lboost_program_options
-ltorrent -lgnutls
checking if BTG can link with the provided/found libraries... no

I've seen btg howto (, where this problem was discussed, but i just can't understand what the way i need "to adjust CXXFLAGS and LDFLAGS before running configure". Can someone tell me what should i do or what i did wrong?

Thanx for the attention to my problem.

Are you trying to build this from source or are you installing from .deb packages?

The .deb packages are pre-built and you do not configure them.

The reason I ask is that the howto you pointed to is confusing and makes it sound like you have to do configure after downloading packages. This is mis-leading.

I think you must use rb_libtorrent-devel instead of libtorrent-devel or torrent-devel package. I think...

Yes, i'm trying to build it from source. Looking at the apt-cache libtorrent libraries are the only.
