      Its incredible man !!! It just worked. I have been trying hard to
configure and make the libraries for Linux for several days. I almost gave
up. Got this package of MS for Linux from http://www.maptools.org/fgs/ as
Daniel had mentioned. And guess what ...it just worked within few  minutes.
Great work buddy and thanks a lot.
Could you please enlighten us as to how do you guys manage to pack
everything  together.

Thanks again !!

As Paul wrote in his previous reply, MS4W is for Windows only. However, 
we have started work on a Linux/Unix packaging system similar to MS4W 
which is called FGS. Note that this is not an officially supported 
project yet and the number of packages is still small, but you can see 
what's available at:
