1.3.3 compiling trouble

thanks a lot for your comments. The settings for ./configure came from 
another SRPM I've found somewhere, this was just the first aproximation ;-)

My servers have 3GB RAM, so it should be OK. We're planning to create 
public dcc servers along with public ClamAV already present, so these 
servers have some extra power.

I prefer having nothing in /usr/local/.

I'd like to have configuration files in /etc, but if these settings mean 
that database files will be placed there too... well, I'll probably 
reconsider. Is it possible to have configuration and database files
