Ok. So now I did it in FreeBSD 4.7 and everything works dandy. Main
difference between rh-8 and fBSD4.7? Libtool. RH-8 is on libtool 1.4.2
which (it has been noted by Benny) is quite flawed and FBSD is on 1.4.3
which Olivier has mentioned he using. So an upgrade to 1.4.3 might be
necesary. If this is to be confirmed, the configure script for
xfce-mcs-manager should require >= 1.4.3 to work. Any confirmations?
