I built it from CVS, and had 4 failures.

cond5.test, gettext.test, gettext2.test, subdircond.test

There is also a problem with building from CVS now that
aclocal and automake aren't generated in the AC_CONFIG_FILES
section. I build the program like this ...

$ cd automake-cvs
$ cvs -z6 update -Pd
$ mkdir objdir
$ cd objdir
$ ../configure

The problem is the Makefile may try to use aclocal and automake
to update the files in the source directory, and as they aren't
built, the build fails. I worked around this by making two scripts
called "automake" and "aclocal" that were nothing more than ...


exit 0

... executing make (which made nothing), then "touch"ing
in the source directory, running make again (giving me a good aclocal
program), then "touch"ing  the file, and doing make
again, producing a valid automake. This is a total kludge, but it

The perl binary on this machine is perl 5.8.0.
