Yeap, for me even the termcap library was not installed on my Suse machine 
(that explains a lot!!). However i did have the ncurses library installed 
I installed the termcap library, then ran the "configure" script that Matt 
give but I have the same old result...
checking termcap.h usability... no
checking termcap.h presence... no
checking for termcap.h... no 

so I follow Peter suggestion:
"ln -s /usr/lib/" in the /src/cmdline/ directory of the uncompressed ifeffit 

and then...problem solved...
Thanks Peter
