It compiles fine on SuSE 8.2, but there's a little problem in install: it 
can't find the libqt-mt.so because the library is named differently.
This can be easily fixed with this command: 

ln -s     /usr/lib/libqt-mt.so.3      /usr/lib/libqt-mt.so

After that, the install procedure goes just fine. 
I've tried to fire up IDE and it opens just nicely, and it seem to work. 
However, when I tried to select different font for a text frame,  IDE bailed 
out with this message: 

FProperty.SaveProperty.256: #13: Null object

I've tried it several times, sometimes it changes the font to the desired 
value, sometimes it bails out... it seems that I can't reproduce it in 
consistent manner. I've tried to change fonts over and over, and sometimes 
it crashes, sometimes not. I presume it might happen in this case: since I 
have "focus follows mouse" and many windows open, it might be that I 
accidentaly switch focus to some other window, at which time properties 
window changes to reflect the other window, and when I try to apply new font, 
it crashes. I've tested this on source window, and it crashes every time:

1. I open a form, button, whatever
2. I click on font property of a regular object to get font chooser
3. I move my mouse over the source window, to give it a focus; properties 
window in fact does change to something (!)
4. I try to apply new font selection and voila - boom, crash, bang! :)

Now that would explain that "Null object". Is it possible to force Gambas to 
stick properties window to selected object, to avoid switching between 
objects and components just by moving the mouse over them?
