Eterm-0.9.2 ./configure libast not found


dist: slackware ; kernel: 2.4.21

I've found plenty of postings everywhere about this, but no solution.
If anyone can help me figure this out I'd be grateful. I've been
coming back to this time and again without success.

This is the location of my files

The Eterm-0.9.2 ./congure script error is:
checking for libast-config... libast-config
checking for libast_malloc in -last... no
ERROR: You need LibAST 0.5 or higher to build Eterm. If you already have it,
you may have it installed in a strange place, or you may need to run
/sbin/ldconfig. If you don't have it, I can download it for you.
Shall I retrieve and build LibAST now (y/n)?

Thanks for even looking at this.

Wow. It seems you have more than one libast versions installed. Try cleaning your stuff up...

If you do a google search for 'libast', one of the links you'll find is a rant by Patrick about why he doesn't like the 'assorted spiffy things' and why he won't include it in Slackware. Use aterm instead.

Enjoy!

This link shows how to get around the libast problems and get Eterm running. However, I agree with Cerbere, aterm works fine.
