Hi johannes! i doubt it has to do with the premake, if the sources were not found then premake would have given you an error

Have your student do this

premake4 cleanall
premake4 … --with-fomus="whatever"
make verbose=1

then look at the compiler messages to make sure theta the fomus support is being compiled and that the program links to it. it might be that there is a problem loading the fomus library itself, which would also mean that "FOMUS…" would not be displayed at startup.
