I think it was because the drive my gambas stuff sits on was mounted at
startup and root was the owner and nothing i did changed owner of
disk/folders/files from root to me.

I found some info online saying about adding the following to fstab in the
disk mounting line...

i used ubuntu disk utility to set it (see pic)

Now finally root is not owner of the disk and ./configure works fine.

what's odd is i have never had a problem before and didn't really change
anything (apart from usual updating with apt).
Then all of a sudden yesterday i started getting this permissions error
with ./configure.  my guess is a linux/mint update changed something in
permission giving.

Thanks anyway :)
