Hi Henrik,

I just compiled and installed w3c-libwww-5.2.8 on our ix86-linux systems
(kernel 2.2.10 and either libc-5.4.38 or glibc-2.1.1).

1.
I had to replace your libtool (I think it was version 1.12e) with my newer
version 1.3.2. The old libtool failed to recognize my shared libraries
/lib/libc.so.5.4.36, /lib/libdl.so.1.9.5, and so on, with the usual
unpleasant consequences.

2.
When I tried "make DESTDIR=something install" (as non-root user) I badly
failed because make tried to create the directory /usr/include/w3c-libwww in
spite of the DESTDIR -- the attached patch fixed that problem but I am sure
there is a better way to let automake do that automatically.

with best regards
Peter Breitenlohner <peb@mppmu.mpg.de>
