Hehe, as far as "you guys" go, I am actually a TMW developer. If the
check on PHYSFS_init fails it's generally not a TMW problem though.
It's probably the compiler unable to find libphysfs.so or similar (at
least as far as I know PHYSFS_init is still around in 1.1.0).

For more details on why configure says "no", check your config.log.
TMW should configure just fine with 1.1.0, the reason we tell you not
to use it is only because it'll crash when you try to run it.

Btw, note that we support the use of Dev-C++ as well as Code::Blocks
for compiling TMW, and a DevPak is provided with all the necessary
dependencies (including the right version of PhysFS). So maybe you
could just save yourself the trouble of compiling them all yourself
and go with that.
