poptParseArgvString is in the $PREFIX/lib/libpopt.so.0 library from
our devel/popt port. The latest available version of this software is
1.16, in the Red Hat repos.  Look at the configure script to determine
why it can't find the symbol. Maybe you need to reinstall devel/popt,
or patch the configure script.
