Fluxbox make help

I'm running a p1 166mhz laptop and trying to install fluxbox.

"./configure --enable-kde" works fine

"make" works alright for awhile, but then it gets to one part, it doesn't seem to be doing anything at all.

wondering if it is just still processing or what.

thanks in advance.

the last little part of the make output is if that helps, the output is pretty long.

On a P166, you can expect it to take quite a long time to build anything. Don't be surprised if compiling takes a long time. Check your CPU usage; if it's close on 100%, then it's probably still compiling that file.
