I am using MEPIS (Debian-based distro) on Pentium III
Two Problems:

1. The readme says to get mimepp from http://yahoopops.sourceforge.net/downloads but it isn't there

2.I don't know where the root folder is for curl:
cURL wouldn't compile because:
/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
so I installed the debian package.

I installed curl with apt-get, but what do I say when yahoopops asks for my curl root directory? I couldn't find one. Only the binary in usr/bin, and a certificate file under /usr/lib/curl and those are the only two files that searching for curl* found (besides the src tree that wouldn't compile because of sanity check) Just so you know, openssl compiled fine and curl successfully found it in /usr/local/ssl but then curl wouldn't compile so that's why installed curl with apt-get.


So in summary I need mimepp, and the curl root folder,
so I can install latest YahooPOPs. If you want me to use the compiled version of curl, the configure error is below:
