Question Eterm and Libast 0.5?

Hey all,
When attempting to ./configure the eterm source, I come across an error that it isn't finding libast 0.5 or higer. This is strange, as I installed it just a minute ago, before this. Any advice on how to do make eterm see it? Here is the error:

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)? 
 configure: error: Fatal:  libast not found.
Also, when I try to have it retrieve the package it fails.
I ran /sbin/ldconfig, but nothing changed. Thanks!

If you compiled the source of libast, try installing the slack packet or vice versa
