ls -al /usr/local/lib/libgretl*
Thanks for your quick answer -- after executing these commands I did
sudo make install again and from the dates of the libgretl* links and
files they were replaced, and gretl still runs. So that's good and it
seems it really is the cvs version. Of course I don't know if that would
have helped without installing the 1.8.5 debs, but that's just of
academic interest I guess.
sudo echo "/usr/local/lib" >> /etc/ld.so.conf
I didn't need to use these.
