"Charles M. Hannum" sez:
 * The GIMP didn't build correctly as of a few days ago; because it

Could some kind soul explain to me why you'd want to use different
paths for -R and -L, seeing as -R is the run-time path and -L is the
link time path?  When would these two be different?  I've certainly
never run into such an instance of reality.  I think I can see the
theory, but not the practice.


I want to upgrade my system from Solaris 2.0 to 4.4 BSD.
