Installing Wackamole on X86_64 Linux

Just a friendly geek tip for the Google index.  I tried installing wackamole on an Intel Celeron-D (64 bit) running Fedora 5.

I untarred and ran `./configure` but was met with the unwelcoming:

checking build system type… Invalid configuration `x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu’: machine `x86_64-unknown’ not recognized
configure: error: /bin/sh ./config.sub x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu failed

After a little guesswork and some guessing, I was able to get it properly configured  using

`./configure –build=x86-linux`.

Everything built properly and seems to be running a-ok.
