I'm trying to install OpenCascade on Fedora Core. I made the changes to the source to use sstream and std::strstream. The good news is everything compiles. But when I do the make install, it looks for libraries of the format libTKernel.0.0.0 which is there in adm/make/TKernel. But for other libraries libTKMath, the corresponding file doesn't exist. I have no idea what a .la file is either or how the library file may be generated using the .la files.
Can anybody tell me what I have to do to get these .0.0.0 files to be generated ? If I do a make all, it thinks nothing needs to be done in any of the directories.
