Hello Loren,

Sorry for the delayed response.  Serious mail backlog.  Anyway, you were
sooooo close.  Just add /libntp to the end of your
--with-libntp-libraries tag:


Just fyi, I'm going to be removing the libntp dependency for the next
version of libidmef and the IDMEF XML plugin.  This will make everyone's
world better.  On a similar not, I'm working with some fine folks at
Harvey Mudd College to incorporate the IDXP transport protocol in with
the plugin.  Check the website for updates. 

Please drop me a line if you run into further problems.

Kind Regards,

-Joe M.
