    XEmacs configure: warning: Module support cannot be provided.


    Issue: ./configure script does not provide module support .. Cannot install XEmacs on Centos 5.0

    Had to install curses to get this to work.

    # ./configure
    .....
    configure: warning: Module support cannot be provided.
    *** PANIC *** configure forgot how to build working executables!

    *** This is most commonly due to an unforeseen environment, causing
    *** configure to incorrectly compute the sequence of libraries to link.
    *** Please examine the tail of config.log for runtime errors.
    *** Pay special attention to the -l flags, and perhaps -I and -L.
    *** Often adding or removing explicit options in the configure
    *** invocation can work around this kind of problem. If so, please
    *** report it as a bug to xemacs-beta@xemacs.org.
    ***
    *** Other possible causes are inability to write to the file system
    *** (bogus permissions or disk full) or a misconfiguration of the dynamic
    *** linker. On Linux, check /etc/ld.conf and rerun ldconfig if
    *** necessary. On other systems, try telling configure where to find
    *** the shared libraries using the --site-runtime-libraries option.
    ***
    *** Another way to shoot yourself in the foot is to specify
    *** --with-FEATURE when FEATURE is not actually installed on your
    *** system. Don't do that.

    XEmacs finally installed

    After installing curses (yum install *curses*), I use this link to install "xorg-x11-xbitmaps" (using yum instal .. again)

    Finally, I was able to make; make install and get XEmacs up and running.

    Thanks.
