I'm trying to install rimage in R version 2.5.1 running on Fedora 6
(kernel with the headers and gcc installed, along with
fftw2 and libjpeg and headers):

I cannot find "config.log" that is mentioned. Can someone please tell me
what is missing from my configuration? rimage installed on another
system running Fedora 7 once I installed fftw2.
