I've had a much closer look now, and see where the build process was
going wrong... clearly I didn't take the time to understand how it was
supposed to work in the first place, and my previous script will show
up my lack of knowledge... sorry! :-/

So, "make dist" creates leafnode (just leafnode) and leafnode-pcre
(leafnode + pcre library... I'd assumed this was a supplement to the
leafnode tarball, only containing pcre).

Since I'm new to the list, how should I submit patches - to Cornelius
directly, or to the list? I have some fixes for the makerpm.sh script
which should resolve most of the build problems.

As already stated - is anyone else encountering the problem Cornelius
found? It works fine here.
