Congrats, you have a fast computer (and perhaps a cache of 
configure-results too).

I don't know... if I installed a library that I found out was missing, 
what else can I do, apart from ./configure again ?

Well, most of the time, what I need to change in the conf, is what a 
configure-script did not detect, and needs to be detecting now. Can I skip 
autoreconf in that case ? but doing "make" seems to be redoing much of the 
"work" that ./configure does anyway.

But did you read at all what the problem was ? I didn't get any 
[pix_video] support, so I wasn't able to test whether the [pix_artoolkit] 
really worked.

When was that ? 2003 ?
