compiling AliRoot with ROOT v5-08-00

Dear rooters,  

    I have downloaded and compiled the new ROOT version (v5-08-00), but now, trying to compile the AliRoot HEAD I am using (it has been downloaded on Nov 1st, and it worked perfectly with ROOT v5-06-00), I have a problem.

   Apart from an error concerning the fact that AliPythia.h was not able to find TPythia class (which I have been able to go around copying some files froom a directory to another), at the very end this error occurs: ...
Making executable bin/tgt_linux/aliroot ***** /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lEGPythia6
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [bin/tgt_linux/aliroot] Error 1 make[1]: Leaving directory
`/yp/exports1/aliprod1/zampolli/zampolliSoft/AliRoot/HEAD011105' make: *** [default] Error 2

I do not know how to solve it, in this case it is not just a matter of copying files from here to there... Perhaps, as the previous error, this one is due to the fact that I have compiled root running the following script, which always worked till now:

[ -r lib ] || mkdir lib
cat > /tmp/p.c <<EOF
void nevercalled() {}
gcc -c -o /tmp/p.o /tmp/p.c
ar rv lib/libPythia.a /tmp/p.o
ranlib lib/libPythia.a
ar rv lib/libPythia6.a /tmp/p.o
ranlib lib/libPythia6.a
./configure linux \

--enable-pythia --with-pythia-libdir=$ROOTSYS/lib \
--enable-pythia6 --with-pythia6-libdir=$ROOTSYS/lib \
--enable-cern --enable-rfio \


and which, perhaps, now is no more correct/valid/appropriate. Could you help me?

Thank you in advance.
