PPR: problem compiling/running ppr-1.54

I'm trying to get ppr to run on my machine. It's an AMD 64bit system, 
linux kernel 2.6.13, glibc 2.3.5, gcc 4.0.2.

There seems to be a problem with libraries, but I can't figure out what 
or where...

ppr/logs/pprdrv has entries of the sort:

FATAL (...time...): read_PPD_file(): can't open "double free or 
corruption (!prev)/(NULL)", errno=2 (No such file or directory)

The filename is some text fragment from elsewhere.

A similar error message is printed upon the query

ppad show printer_name:

ppad: can't open PPD file "double free or corruption (!prev)/(NULL)", 
errno=2 (No such file or directory)

needless to say, nothing gets printed at all...

In ppr/printers/alerts I find the following message:

Fri Aug....
Printing aborted because pprdrv died. The stated reason for its death 
(killed by signal 0) is nonsense but may indicate that dynamic linking 
failed due to a problem with the shared library search path.

Can anybody please help me out here? I've no clue where to look.
