Re: [swish-e] building swish-e-2.4.5 using gcc 4

I've managed to get swish-e to build, but I'm not very comfortable with the 'sollution'. I ran configure with the --with-pcre option and it built fine. As the configure script has the line "Not building with perl compatible regex - use --with-pcre to enable", I assume including --with-pcre will build swish-e to use perl-compatible regular expressions.

Why this would make swish-e compile sucessfully is not obvious to me, and I'm not comfortable with problems going away magically :)

Also, would perl-compatible regular expressions be meaningfully different from non-compatible expressions? Basically: does building --with-pcre result in swish providing different search results than without?

Sorry, I realise answerning c lib compilation errors isn't exactly what this list is for.

On the system where things compile smoothly:
	/lib/ ->

On the system where it doesn't:
	 /lib/ ->

As for the complation errors, things complile find until this step:
