I have no answer to your question, but if you figure out how, please post it. I've tried to compile eterm many times in many ways and have yet to get it to work (including pointing specifically at libast with a --with-labast= statment. No matter how I install libast, the eterm configuration can't seem to find it.

Aterm works nicely however!
