Imlib2 problems

Hey everyone!

I'm trying to compile Imlib2 for Eterm use, and on the compile, I'm getting the following error:

make[2]: Entering directory `/root/imlib2-1.0.6/loaders'
/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=link gcc  -O2 -march=athlon-tbird -mcpu=athlon-tbird -L/usr/X11R6/lib -L../src -o -rpath /usr/lib/loaders/image -no-undefined -module -avoid-version loader_jpeg.lo -ljpeg -L../src -lImlib2 -L/usr/lib

gcc -shared  loader_jpeg.lo  -L/usr/X11R6/lib -L../src -ljpeg -lImlib2 -L/usr/lib -lc  -Wl,-soname -Wl, -o .libs/
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lImlib2
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [] Error 1

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/imlib2-1.0.6'
make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2

It's weird, it's somehow trying to link to the library I'm trying to install -


I do see a -L directive to ../src, but if I look in that directory, there's only a Imlib.h - no library file (.a or .so).

Anyone got any ideas?
