Sorry, for the missing translation:
/bin/sh: cd: SoNXLakeShore: File or directory not found

You're right: The directory is missing, but only in the =build tree.
I found it in at the following places in the tree


the first contains the source to be distribute. I think, that's is correct.
the second appearance seems to be a copy of the source distribution tree and 
it is empty. The reason may be the missing directory in the =build/src tree.
(Having a look on the Makefile I saw in the 'distcheck' target, that this 
target will run a 'make dist' again ???)

The problem is, the default configure script doesn't generate all features of 
the package. The normal build works fine, with and without the additional 
feature. But in 'make distcheck' I haven't any way to say the configure 
script, built all. (Or is there a way to say it?)
