I saw the previous bug, but also wanted to leave a
message:

Doing a build on Mandrake 8.1 seems to leave out the
creation of the libquicktime.so file, thereby failing
the make install (at least in my non-programming
mind, this is what is happening).

If I uncomment the line in the Makefile that does the
gcc++ build, it creates the proper file, however the
make install still doesn't work properly. I had to go
into the i686 directory and copy out libquicktime.a
and libquicktime.so and place them back in the root
directory, and then run the make install. This time,
everything works.

    .so files are a bad idea for obscure libraries like this.
