Installing rmagick

CentOS 4 - (RHEL 4 clone)

I have ImageMagick and ImageMagick-development installed as well as
libjpeg and libjpeg-devel installed and think that I have the necessary
requirements in place.

Installing the gem…

gem install rmagick results in…(gem_make.out)
ruby gem_config.rb install rmagick

sh configure

Configuring RMagick 1.12.0
checking for gcc… gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name… a.out
checking whether the C compiler works… yes
checking whether we are cross compiling… no
checking for suffix of executables…
checking for suffix of object files… o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler… yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g… yes
checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C… none needed
checking for ruby… /usr/bin/ruby
checking for Magick-config… Magick-config
checking for InitializeMagick in -lMagick… no
RMagick configuration failed with status 1.

trying to install from tarball does much the same…

I had no such problems on Fedora Core 5

FC-5 ImageMagick-…
RHEL 4 ImageMagick-…

is this my problem? suggestions?
