ntfsprogs and Fuse Compilation errors and Solution here

Got some luck to compile ntfsprogs. Ntfsprogs are a collection of utilities for doing stuff with NTFS volumes. Steps to compile ntfsprogs .
1. get the FUSE and compile it.
$ tar xvzf fuse-2.7.4.tar.gz
$ ./configure --disable-kernel-module
$ make
getting error while compiling examples dir.

libtool: link: gcc -Wall -W -Wno-sign-compare -Wstrict-prototypes -Wmissing-declarations -Wwrite-strings -g -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -o .libs/fusexmp fusexmp.o -pthread -pthread ../lib/.libs/ -ldl
../lib/.libs/ undefined reference to `clock_gettime'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/bhagwat/fuse-2.7.4/example'
Solution is
$ cd examples
open Makefile go to line no 205 change the option from -ldl to -lrt
$ cd ../make
$ make install

FUSE will be installed in default dir ie /usr/local/lib
Get the ntfsprogs from linux-ntfs. untar ntfsprograms
$ tar xvzf ntfsprogs-2.0.0.tar.gz
$ ./configure --enable-ntfsmount

still getting same error
smount ntfsmount-ntfsmount.o ntfsmount-utils.o -pthread ../libntfs/.libs/ -L/usr/local/lib /usr/local/lib/ -ldl
/usr/local/lib/ undefined reference to `clock_gettime'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [ntfsmount] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/bhagwat/ntfsprogs-2.0.0/ntfsprogs'

so go to ntfsprogs and change the -ldl option to -lrt in Makefile.
and done.
I got successfully compiled ntfsprogs and got ntfsmount for my embedded linux box.
Note:- I have compiled these utilities in Scratchbox is a cross-compilation toolkit designed to make embedded Linux application development easier.
Also note that FUSE require libpthred lib in scratchbox home, before compiling setup libpthred also.
The shortcut to all this compilation error and efforts is use Debian pre-compiled source for ntfsprogs for ARM.
