Nope, it was smooth -- I compiled CVS HEAD, not the download tarball. Make sure you have g++ and libusb-devel installed, and run:
- ./buildgen.sh (runs autoconf/automake to make ./configure)
- ./configure (builds Makefile)
- ./make (duh
The resulting binaries are under tools/, mainly you're after btool and bcharge. I had to 'rmmod usb-storage' *after* plugging in the Pearl, then btool worked fine. I was able to list my address book (etc.), dump everything to a LDIF file, and so on.
