link the to match lib*.so
cd /usr/local/lib
ln -s libgltt.so.0 libgltt.so

on Debian systems (i do not know the policies for other distributions)
you should *not* install "private" libraries to /usr/lib/ (this is
reserved for package-installations)

on the other hand, i think that the configure-script only searches the
library in /usr/lib, and if it fails, it looks for a lib*.a (!!! static
library) in (subdirectories of) <my_src_dir> (when you are installing
from <my_src_dir>/gem-0.99/src/Gnu)

so maybe you should really link to /usr/lib/libgltt.so

well, i promise to repair the configure (although my personal edition
looks even worse by now, due to "repairing"...)
