I’m trying to compile 1.3.11-beta on my Ubuntu 9.10 machine. ./configure runs fine and exits normally, but the make aborts after a while. From what I can see from the errors it is complaining about automake not being installed. I took a look and I have automake 1.11. I’m stumped.
Here’s the error output…
automake-1.10' is missing on your system. You should only need it if you modified Makefile.am’,
acinclude.m4' or configure.in’.
You might want to install the
Automake' and Perl’ packages.
Grab them from any GNU archive site.
cd . && perl admin/am_edit
cd . && perl admin/am_edit Makefile.in
cd . && rm -f configure
cd . && make -f admin/Makefile.common configure

My apologies if this is something extremely obvious and covered elsewhere.
Thanks for your help!
