Thanks, this link works. Originally I tried the download links from the
sourceforge page.

Without the libsvm the compilation works fine. But the event related script
stops at another point. With the libsvm enabled the compilation stops again,
and couldn't figure out in 10 minutes what the problem is (though I'm not
too familiar with the compilation). Looks like I'll wait for the next
release or look after this problem if I have some time. Thanks for the help
so far.
