I don't know what the adepts do, but I find I have to steer 
some compiles/configures by hand, like you did adding 
libraries to the compile line.

When I get to your 2nd problem I have to figure out the 
compile line or the Makefile and get the compile object out 
from the command line. Most of the time when you go back to 
the top of the compile tree, the Makefile will see the 
compiled object and be happy. Sometimes libtool starts from 
scratch erasing the object files and you're history.

I looked at the configure docs once. They're about an inch 
thick and would take a lot of time to figure out what's 
going on. I gave up.
