must it be 2.4.1?
I ask because I would be curious to see if the buildswishe.pl script in
the current cvs daily would handle this need.
you might run it as:
perl buildswishe.pl --installdir /tmp/swishe
and then tar up /tmp/swishe and unpack it on your destination machine.
buildswishe.pl builds with --disable-shared libraries and tries to
resolve all the include and lib paths for you. I use it to build on
I don't know if the compiled binaries would work on a different machine,
but you might try it and let us know if it does.
