Hi Naga,

The difference is in the ./configure commands.

As I see it, libfm-extra only installs the "extra" components of libfm, 
wheras the libfm install the full libfm-package.

In short - you only need to install libfm.

On a sidenote, this question should have been posted to the BLFS-Support 
group ;)

Best regards
