Well, I solved that problem. The problem was that I was trying to compile it in the shell server, not in the pc itself. Now I uncovered more problems :P
It seems xdm or kdm or i-dont-know-what is trying to run /usr/sbin/AfterStep 1.7 which was the old version instead of my $HOME/AfterStep/bin/afterstep
This is a major pain in the ass, because I tried and edited .xinitrc, .XDefaults , .XDefaults-something and all types of .files, but with no success. It seems to me, from my personal experience and from reading the mailing lists that running AfterStep under some stupid xdm is hard as hell. Is there a default procedure/FAQ/RTFM for this? People I know and whom I introduce AS all complain from this. It is REALLY a major drawback for someone trying AS.

Thanks in advance for anwsers.
