I have flext 0.4.6 installed, but the ./configure for readanysf~ gives this:

checking for AddOutSignal in -lflext... no

you want to link to FLEXT dynamicaly, a very good idea, but...
..configure couldn't find the FLEXT lib.  Taking your word for it.
This seems to be normal on linux.  Don't know why it happens.
just make sure you have the libflext.so in one of the paths listed
under /etc/ld.so.conf (for linux).  and, as root do ldconfig

and the compile gives this:

cannot find -lflext
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [readanysf~.pd_linux] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/umatic/externals/readanysf~0.13/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/umatic/externals/readanysf~0.13'
make: *** [all] Error 2

my /etc/ld.so.conf looks like this:

# ld.so.conf autogenerated by env-update; make all changes to
# contents of /etc/env.d directory

and I have run ldconfig since changing it.

[I am running Gentoo. Does anyone know which file in /etc/env.d updates this?]

I also tried with Flext 0.4.7 with no difference in errors.
I'll try an older version of readnaysf~ and see if that works.
