Subject: [Caml-list] problem compiling 3.07 on RH7.3
I am trying to compile the 3.07 source on:

   Red Hat Linux release 7.3 (Valhalla)
   Kernel 2.4.18-10smp on a 2-processor i686

Configured as follows:

./configure -prefix /home/mff/ocaml-3.07-rh -no-tk

Eventually, I get an error that cannot be found:

Error on dynamically loaded library: cannot open shared object

This is not my machine nor do I have root access so I'm flying blind.
Does this error message indicate some problem with the RH 7.3 installation
on this machine, i.e., does ocaml depend upon  Or could
it be a O'Caml configuration issue?  There is _no_
libgcc*.so of any kind on this machine so I am suspicious.
