  '', I believe the latest is 2.6.4. You can install
it where ever you want, or use the default and make links to it. There
are some instructions in the source for making a shared library if you
wish although the static library is fine by itself and will be used if
it doesn't find a shared library while linking. The '--enable-compat185'
is to allow programs using the old routines to work by including the
old API in the lib, generally you'll want to do this.

Ignorance is curable, but some refuse the inocculation.
