Well, the app is http://roadnav.sourceforge.net/downloads.php - I
haven't tweaked it at all, so you can get the .tar right from them.
It's a 2-part app, part one is the library, it installed fine after I
symlinked wxgtk2-2.85-config to wx-config. Make install then put a
bunch of stuff in /usr/local/include/libroadnav, and libroadnav.a into
Then running configure on the main app complains that it can't find
Map.h, which is right there where the lib's makefile installed it. I
thought it was a permissions problem, but I can't see how. I've run
all the commands as a sudoer, and the permissions/owner/etc on
libroadnav look just like all the other libs/includes...
