symbol lookup error occurs after compiling pacman

Hi there, i met some problems with my pacman before so i just decide to compile it again. I download the src and then execute the following commands

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var
make
sudo make install

but after these, when i run my pacman, an error occurs:

pacman: symbol lookup error: pacman: undefined symbol: alpm_option_set_usedelta

i couldn't find any related information on the web, does anyone know what exactly happened?
thx.

Re: symbol lookup error occurs after compiling pacman

What kind of "problems" did you meet that made you think you needed to recompile pacman?

I'm not trying to be obnoxious -- I really am curious.

Re: symbol lookup error occurs after compiling pacman

I compiled pacman once on another distro so that I could maintain my arch install from there.  Though at the time I was moving towards using my arch install as my daily driver.  Now it is really the only install I use.

Re: symbol lookup error occurs after compiling pacman

If this symbol isn't defined, then you compiled alpm from git. The patch that changes the name of this function is unreleased.

I try the link you give, but now there is another error message.

pacman: undefined symbol: alpm_option_get_syncdbs

Did I misunderstand something?
