Actually, when i install it, i don't do "./configure ; make ; make
install" with semi-colons, but i do:
  make install
and visually inspect the last screen or so of output to see if there was
an error before i run the next command.

Thank you for your responses and politeness. I'm going out of town this
weekend, but as i said in a previous message, next week i'll try again
to get AfterStep running.
