Ack, I'll try to find what's happening right away.

Since version 1 of the patch my efforts concentrated on making this
work outside of the source tree. So it seems that or there was still
some nit when building in the source tree, or I have introduced it
when making it build outside of it.

BTW I already have an updated version of include/README which will be
included in version 3 of the patch along with the fix for this.

I've also done some testing of 'make install' and it seems to work
properly. At least for me.

I have a question that those of you which are used to deal with
library installations will certainly know better than me. Probably
there are several answers.

How do 'people' handle having several versions, with different ABI, of
the same library installed on a system so that the user can choose at
will which one to use ? And if each version, additionally, has
incompatible public header files ?

It might seem a stupid question. But sure there's someone doing it
with some library, so please elaborate.

Maybe the above is not the proper question, but my worries are going
in that direction more or less.
