Eterm configure issues

I cannot seem to install Eterm .9.2. ALWAYS libAST seems to be missing. I downloaded this lib, installed it, and ran ldconfig. But its like, its still not there.

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

thats the message. So... if I have it installed in a strange place, how do I make the Eterm configure file know where it's at?

at a command prompt type:
(in the unpacked Eterm directory)
<prompt>$ ./configure --help
this should print out all types of configuration options that will specify what kind of options you can pass to the configure script... so that you can specify libAST in such a way as something like this...
<prompt>$ ./configure --with-libast=/usr/local/lib/
or something like that...
also you might want to check /etc/ ... this is a text file that specifies where ldconfig should look for library files. Check where libAST is installed and make sure where it resides (like say /usr/local/lib) is in the it should be but you never know .... so it'd be good to check.

good luck.
