Installing POSE (Palm Emulator) && Palm Related Questions (/dev/pilot disappears =|)

First off, I'm trying to develop for the Palm, particularly in Java, but that is mostly irrelevent. The issue is I can't get the emulator installed properly.

It depends on fltk, however, for whatever reason, it won't install on any of the 1.x versions. I didn't know this ahead of time, fltk installed flawlessly, POSE broke. Okay, I do some reading, and 1.0.x works. The only version that old available on the website was 1.0.11, and it wouldn't compile. It breaks when trying to link fluid:

=== making fluid ===
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/ynadji/fltk-1.0.11/fluid'
Linking fluid...
Fl_Function_Type.o(.text+0x25f): In function `Fl_Function_Type::make()':
: undefined reference to `operator new(unsigned)'
Fl_Function_Type.o(.text+0xabf): In function `Fl_Code_Type::make()':
: undefined reference to `operator new(unsigned)'
Fl_Function_Type.o(.text+0xc3f): In function `Fl_CodeBlock_Type::make()':
: undefined reference to `operator new(unsigned)'
Fl_Function_Type.o(.text+0xf2f): In function `Fl_Decl_Type::make()':
: undefined reference to `operator new(unsigned)'

There was lots of stuff here, trimmed for post size issues.

: undefined reference to `operator new[](unsigned)'
../lib/libfltk.a(fl_draw_image.o)(.text+0x1322): In function `innards(unsigned char const*, int, int, int, int, int, int, int, void (*)(void*, int, int, int, unsigned char*), void*)':
: undefined reference to `operator delete[](void*)'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [fluid] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/ynadji/fltk-1.0.11/fluid'
I tried to install both fltk-1.0.7-2.rh6.1.i386.rpm, and fltk-1.0.11.i386.rpm (rpm's generally work for me after a nice rpm2tgz'ing) POSE wasn't able to detect an installation of fluid (part of fltk) so POSE didn't work. I also tried installing the source RPM's, and compiling from there, but nothing worked.

Has anyone sucessfully gotten POSE to correctly install and work on Linux?

Second Question: /dev/pilot seems to just *disappear* randomly. I have to go through, and mknod a bunch of stuff, to get the stupid thing working, then I have to do everything all over again each time I want to use it, which is quite the pain. I have a PalmOne Zire 72s that connects through a USB cable if that helps at all.
