Background: new computer, fresh Ubuntu 11.10 install, compiled tn5250
from cvs source.

I resolved the obvious issues by installing missing -dev packages but
still have one I haven't figured out.

I get a bunch of error from make like:
x5250.c:1896: undefined reference to `tn5250_config_parse_argv'

Sounds to me like you have done everything correctly, but I'm wondering if
cvs is missing some code. I can't seem to get cvs to work right now, but
here is a copy I have of tn5250 that should work:

Please report back if this fixes your problems and I'll see what I can do
about cvs.

Diff tells me the only differences are the sslstream.c that I modified to omit sslv2, the files that were created in my tn5250 directory due to compilation, and files in CVS directories (Root and Entries).

Furthermore, picking on my example error, I see the following in my source:
lib5250/conf.h:extern int tn5250_config_parse_argv (Tn5250Config *This,
lib5250/conf.c:tn5250_config_parse_argv (Tn5250Config * This, int argc, char **argv)

Other examples appear to exist as well. It just seems like make can't find what it needs for some reason.

The line before the errors start:
gcc -DDATADIR=\"/usr/local/share\" -g -O2 -l5250 -o x5250 alloccolors.o debug.o dialog.o help.o mouse.o key.o resources.o x5250.o x5250term.o -lX11 -lXext

I also should have specified that I downloaded x5250-0.5.3.tar.gz which was the latest version I could find.
