I think it didn't work the first time because './configure' is
"clever" and keeps a cache of values that it uses on subsequent runs. 
So running 'make distclean' was necessary to make './configure' really
search for the termcap, etc libraries.

But I'm glad to hear it worked, because that means the new configure
will work for the next person who tries.  I'll post a new .tar.gz file

This is probably because Bruce has been migrating web pages around and
some links to
.....washington.edu/~ravel/.... are (temporarily??) broken.
