error on make


Hi, I am trying to compile gpsd, a version of it for my earthmate delorme GPS and I get an error on make, I can't seem to figure it out. The website for the version of gpsd that I am using is here http://trans.civil.northwestern.edu/~jay/gpsd.html

Here are the errors I am getting

gcc -o gpsd gpsd.o -L. -lgpsd -lnsl -lm -lc -lusb
./libgpsd.a(m8.o): In function `takeover_device':
/root/gpsd-1.10_earthmate_usb/m8.c:129: undefined

/root/gpsd-1.10_earthmate_usb/m8.c:361: undefined
reference to `usb_interrupt_read'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [gpsd] Error 1


I am using redhat 8.0 with stock kernel. I thought it was the libusb so i downloaded the newest version and still get the same error.
HELP
thanks

Did you download a development version of the lib with header files?

The headers may not match the version of the lib and is giving you problems.

Most packages dont have header files with libs, so they have a devlopment versions of the libraries that have headers installed as well. Where did you get libusb from?

Hmm, this does contain the headers and everthing.

Sorry if you have but I gotta ask...
do you configure make and make install ( as root ) libusb? Also you did set the correct prefix for configure? ( it defaults too /usr/local which would be wrong for most systems. )

usually you should set the prefix for /usr ( this is normally where things reside ).

What it is happenning with 'undefined reference to'?

I'm working with gnokii proyect and a get the same problem:
undefined reference to 'usb_get_string_simple'

Do I have to update my kernel? I use kernel 2.4.20-8 but my friend laclac01 says that the problem follows.

./configure --prefix=/usr/ --enable-security : this is well
gmake : this is bad. Here is the trouble.

What can/should I do?
