I did a clean download of afterstep-stable from cvs just now, copied it
to a directory called AfterStep-1.99.0, and tarred it up with everything
but /CVS.

I'm using a spec file with

./configure --prefix=/usr/X11R6 --datadir=/usr/share \
        --with-desktops=1 \
        --with-deskgeometry=2x3 \

as the configure line.

Adding 'make clean' before 'make' in the spec file, I still get

/usr/bin/X11/afterstep: relocation error: /usr/X11R6/lib/ undefined symbol: flip_gradient

As the only output from AfterStep before X server shutdown.

Interestingly enough, if I try 'afterstep -v' I get the same error with
that build but *not* with the previous one, which politely tells me

11:36 graydon % afterstep -v
AfterStep version 1.99.0
