The optional z39.50 client support should still compile ok. However,
last time I tested the support, greenstone internals had been changed so
that no navigation bar appears for z39.50 collections, making it rather
difficult to search them. This could possibly be worked around by
tweaking macros or format strings for your collection.

The better solution would be for greenstone's internals to be fixed
to get the search link in the navigation bar when the collection's
"protocol" is z39.50. However, I am working on my phd full time this
year and don't have time to delve back into greenstone internals.
