Fails to compile under Debian squeeze

I'm having compilation issues under a fully up to date build of Debian Squeeze. After sorting all the dependencies, CMake ran beautifully (OGRE was my first experience of CMake, I like :p). After running make, it dumps out at 47%, complaining about uuid.h...

Code: Select all

[ 47%]Building CXX object extern/mygui_3.0.1/MyGUIEngine/CMakeFiles/MyGUIEngine.dir/src/Mygui_Guid.cpp.o

make: ***[all] Error 2
That's handtyped (my terminal emulator apparently doesn't support copying?!), so if there's any queries over accuracy, let me know :p

My initial instinct was to 'updatedb' and 'locate uuid.h' - I found a uuid.hpp in the boost libraries, which I symlinked to uuid.h to see if made any difference. None :(

Can anyone shed some light please? Is this me missing a header file, or some syntactic error somewhere?

Cheers, Apop

/edit - If it makes any difference, the machine is a PowerPC...

Such things'd better be handled on the configure/cmake stage.

Many thanks,

best regards,
