Help. Failed K3b config and make

I've been having lots of trouble burning cd's. I am using SUSE 9.1 with the original kernel (2.6.4) and utilities, With the original cdrecord and k3b, everything appeared normal until it was ready to write the cd. Then the cd just spun up (so I know it found the device), then it just sat there forever. It locked up the system so bad I had to hit the power switch. I couldn't even see the machine from another network machine.

After reading in numerous forums and websites for k3b and cdrtools, it appeared that the cdrecord program might be faulty, so I downloaded the newest version (2.01) and installed it. No change. So I downloaded k3b version 0.11.17 to replace 0.11.7. I configured with ./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`. This ended with:

Configure results:
Ogg Vorbis support: yes

Mp3 decoding support (libmad): no
You are missing the libmad headers and libraries
The Mp3 decoding plugin won't be compiled.

FLAC support: no
You are missing the FLAC++ headers and libraries
The FLAC decoding plugin won't be compiled.

Audio resampling: using K3b version

Resmgr support: yes

Audioplayer available (aRts) yes

Compile K3bSetup 2: yes

Good - your configure finished. Start make now

Then I did the make and got the following error:

libtool: link: cannot find the library `/usr/lib/'

I can understand this based on the negative report on Mp3 support. (And I expect FLAC support to give me the same results if I can ever get that far)

The problem is, libmad is installed and there is a file called in /usr/lib/. So what am I missing? Am I supposed to have a header file? If so, where can I find it?

Is there anything else I need to know about burning cd's with this kernel? I saw some stuff about 2.6.8 bugs, but I don't think this applies to me unless I got a bug from the Yast online update.
