Please let us know if so!

What does a shared program mean?

I would work/collaborate for Perl, in the extents of my knowledge and

What follows isn't a suggestion but a question (_not_ glade specif one.
I'm even dubious if it should live in this thread, so fill free to
detach it):

How is the simplest way to add, say, glib dependence into a C program?
What should I write in and Is there a portable
way to assure that build process will find m4 and other obscure
dependences? Is it the same for any /g.+/ package? Is there common code?
Is it the same for C++?

I would love if you could just say me "see that link...", but don't
believe it was written yet. Yes, of course I would volunteer for that
tutorial, but after learn it better. All of my programs suffer a lot
before configure is ready.
