    Hi Alan,
    
    I tried unsuccessfully the following:
    
    1)
    
    get blcr-source (0.8.2-4) from http://packages.debian.org/sid/blcr-source 
    and try in the official debian/ubuntu way with module-assistant: configure 
    steps works, but build fails, logs attached
    
    2)
    
    get https://ftg.lbl.gov/CheckpointRestart/downloads/blcr-0.8.2.tar.gz,
    unpack, build a la 
    https://upc-bugs.lbl.gov//blcr/doc/html/BLCR_Admin_Guide.html with the 
    known result that the configure step fails
    
    3)
    
    as in 2), but replace configure with configure from 1), i.e. from the 
    debian package.  The configure step works, but the build fails with an 
    interesting process spawning loop in
    
    ...
    Making all in libcr
    make[2]: Entering directory `/home/skluth/blcr/blcr-0.8.2/builddir/libcr'
    if /bin/bash ../libtool --mode=compile gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. 
    -I../../libcr -I.. -D_GNU_SOURCE -D_REENTRANT -I../include -I../../include 
    -I../../libcr/arch/i386/   -Wall -Wno-unused-function   -g -O2 -MT 
    libcr_la-cr_async.lo -MD -MP -MF ".deps/libcr_la-cr_async.Tpo" -c -o 
    libcr_la-cr_async.lo `test -f 'cr_async.c' || echo 
    '../../libcr/'`cr_async.c; \
     	then mv -f ".deps/libcr_la-cr_async.Tpo" 
    ".deps/libcr_la-cr_async.Plo"; else rm -f ".deps/libcr_la-cr_async.Tpo"; 
    exit 1; fi
    ^Cmake[2]: *** [libcr_la-cr_async.lo] Interrupt
    ^C^Cmake[1]: *** [all-recursive] Interrupt
    make: *** [all] Interrupt
    
    fortunately I issued the ^C while my system was still responsive
    
    4) as 3), but with
    
    $ ../configure --with-installed-libcr --with-installed-util
    
    because the problem in 3) was for libcr AFAICT, but this fails in a 
    similar way to 1) (make seems to go fine, but modules are not found)
    
    BTW, the libcr and blcr-util 0.8.2-4 packages from debian installed fine 
    on karmic.
    
    Cheers, Stefan
