      I think that both Puppy Linux and Damn Small Linux can be loaded to boot
      from a flash drive. Both are "small", less than 100 MB.

      But I have never done that personally....

        Jerome, I think the correect way is as root:

        make uninstall

        then recompile fltk with the correct switches.
