 you mean last week? well, last week is also last month, just to remove
 disambiguity, i have received no earlier mails from you.

 as uwe pointed out, we have since last week serious hardware
 problems on our webserver.
 
 i have received four mails from concerning a) the aolserver, and b)
 tclsh without path.

 concerning (a) you are right, determining to build with AOLserver
 from the `pwd` is not pretty, also the hardwired path to the
 AOLserver include directory. i have changed that
 right now. note, that making an aolserver module is only an issue
 for AOLserver 3.*, the AOLserver 4* series does not require this
 at all. Therefore, i have named the configure switch
 --with-aolserver3=AOL_INCLUDE_DIR
 where you have to specify the include directory.
 
 Concerning the second problem, you wrote:

 well, can you be more specific, where this happens?
 XOTcl uses in configure.in SC_PROC_TCLSH
 and uses in all the Makefiles $TCLSH_PROG as far i can see.
 What version of xotcl are you working with?
