As my original email indicated, I did search deja for
answers.  I found two possibilites and neither worked.
Thank you for pointing me to the search function of

I am using the latest version of Slackware.
It seems to only have problems with regex.  My sed
install has the same sort of problem.

I modified my configure to just:
./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-nls

and still:
/usr/lib/libc.a(regex.o): In function
/tmp/glibc-2.1.3/posix/regex.c:257: multiple
definition of `re_max_failures'

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
