I had the same problem when I first started using cgis. It turns out 
that not all Unix installations install the full set of library files. 
There are two in particular that Rev looks for which are often not 
installed, and this is one of them. I can't remember the name of the 
other, but if you get another similar error it will probably include the 
second file name.

You can either update the Linux installation or just put in an empty 
dummy file with the right name. Rev doesn't really read or use the file, 
it just has to be in there.

I know virtually nothing about Linux installations, so I can't tell you 
where the file is supposed to go. My ISP installed it for me. All I know 
is that you only need an empty text file with the right name.
