(Where have I heard caracal before?)

I have no idea what that error means ... I'll ask tido (Linux maintainer), he probably knows. (Unless you're trying to compile what's in SVN/trunk right now - that will probably fail miserably).

Hmm... apart from trying to build the very latest SVN build, the other reason might be that you don't have access to making a directory. Prep makes missing directories to put binaries in.

The point was that you should avoid the latest SVN "build". Stick to releases. :D

Ahem. Yes. Maybe it would be good idea to only keep things that compile on all platforms in trunk, ehehehe ^.^)'

Hopefully tido will fix the makefiles soon (hint hint). 8-)
