Thanks, I fixed that one.

I'm not sure what you're talking about here.  Flags are passed at
./configure time, -and- at make install time, because they're required
both times.  Or are you talking about CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS?  I thought those
needed to be passed both at configure and make time, and it seems that
I've forgotten to add them to the configure step.  Let me know if I've
missed something.
