Now I'm really confused.  I had tried several options and edits to the  
Gentoo ebuild file, just getting different errors.  I then manually ran  
../configure, using various options, and getting a variety of different  
errors.  In the meantime, I uninstalled my previous version of Amaya,  
since it wouldn't work since I upgraded my system raptor to version 2.   
I also uninstalled my system libwww.  At that point, I happened to try  
the system install (emerge) again, and it worked fine.  I can't imagine  
what difference the uninstalls would make (although I'm not absolutely  
certain that the new install was trying to use its included libwww and  
not the system version), and I can't think of anything else I changed  
(other than the libz downgrade) that should make any difference.

However - I will now try to upgrade libz and see if Amaya continues to  
work, as mentioned in one of the links Laurent provided.

I guess the bottom line is don't believe any install error the first  
time or two - clean things out and try again from scratch, just to be
