Thanks for the suggestions:
What OS or distro are you using = a minimal 2.6.26 setup
/etc/ld.so.conf does indeed contain /usr/local/lib
$ readelf -s /usr/local/lib/libid3tag.so | grep unknown
22: 00000000 0 NOTYPE GLOBAL DEFAULT UND id3_frametype_unknown
After messing around with a patch mentioned in these lists sometime
in 2007, I noticed that autogen.sh complained about not finding
intltool. I compiled intltool, recompiled libid3tag and then compiled
gtppod and it worked - OK, both complained about automake-1.8 not
being present (I have automake-1.10) and iconv not being present, but
otherwise there were no more errors.
Is it possible that not having intltool was the cause of my problems?
Anyway, gtkpod starts, dmesg doesn't suggest a likely /dev/sd* for my
16GB iPod Touch and gtkpod cannot create a mount point (needs to run
suid root maybe?), but that's another story - things are definitely looking up.
Thanks again for the help
