Recompiled with xrc enbled. Fixed it. Yipee.

Distro supplied, sort of. SourceMage GNU/Linux is source
based and you attend to the compilation of *every* package
by answering a lot of options--even if you don't know *all* the
right answers. ;)

One "tweek" would be to ensure that dynamic linking works.
Also, Source distro's "depend" on released tarballs compiling
or a patch being available from the download site. I think
these would be the biggest help. Not having to search for a
fix if a tarball is broken helps.
