    My guess is that you're building against the wrong version of the

    I built it against the current version of XForms on a Solaris 2.6
    ULTRA 60 Sun and it seems to have worked okay -- we don't have any
    Linux boxen here in the lab yet. We're not running `mysql' in
    production here so I didn't test it exhaustively -- basically I just
    fired up the interface and poked at a couple of buttons and that was
    it but it didn't barf on my shoes so I assume it's happy.

    Make sure you have the correct version of libforms.{a,so} for your
    version of `libc'. This is whence most Linux heartburn emanates. :-/
