Hi Marco,

the ifeffit installation script didn't find the termcap library on my 
machine (SuSE 9.2), although I had it installed using YaST.
The solution was to make a symbolic link to /usr/lib/ ("ln -s /usr/lib 
lib") in the [installation-source]/src/cmdline directory (where 
"[installation-source]" of course is the place where you have unpacked 
the tar file).

Hope that helps,
