Resource Requirements?

I was having problems getting past the './configure' step on my linux
system -- checking for -lcln to be exact.  I eventually learned to
look at the 'config.log' file and realized the problem.  While
compiling the test program for the "-lcln" check my system ran out of
virtual memory (see config.log snippet and /proc/meminfo data below).

However, if I try to compile the test program on my own - outside the
'configure' script - then I have no problems.  Any ideas about how to
get around this?  I could just kluge the 'configure' script since I
know '-lcln' works.  I'm wondering though if my 233 MHz,32MB RAM linux
box isn't going to be able to handle ginac.  Any ideas?

In the mean time, I'm trying to get ginac installed our Sun Enterprise
servers at work but I'm having trouble there too (but I'll tinker with
that some more before bugging all of you!)

Thanks ~ pat <notz at>
