compiling problem with 0.65, libole2

Hi everybody,

I saw that gnumeric version 0.65 was out, so I thought I'd
upgrade.  I use it a LOT to generate LaTeX tables for experiment
reports, and to read excel spreadsheets from my less-than-enlightened
friends -)  I really like this program.  I am so very impressed! 

Previously, I was using the gnumeric that came with Slackware 7.1, 
so I had to download/compile a couple things with newer versions 
that I currently had: libxml and libole2.

Unfortunately, "configure" fails to find libole2:

checking for libole2 >= 0.2.2 ... <FAIL> not found
configure: error: This version of gnumeric requires an external
libole2 library the latest version can be obtained from

Note: I installed libole2 version 0.2.2 in the default
directories, /usr/local/include/libole2 and 

I don't know enough to pick apart the configure script 
(I stared at it a long time, but I just don't grok it).

I'd appreciate any comments or pointers you fine folks can
