RE: adding libraries and header file directories

Hi Ralf - 

I'm still struggling with this. I can link by executing the link
manually as you suggested for testing but I'm still having problems
automating it form autoconf/automake. The package I'm using only
supports up to automake 1.9 (that's the highest that is set in the
bootstrap script). But I modified the bootstrap script so that it would
check and use 1.10. When I run the bootstrap script I get the output
below. So, I have 3 questions:
1) Is there any way to set the --preserve-dup-deps flag with automake
2) Why do I still get the error 'AM_LIBTOOLSFLAGS' not found in library?
3) What changes have to be made to go from 1.9 to 1.10?

Thanks for your help.

If you are using Automake 1.10, then you can put this in LIBTOOLFLAGS
(as user) or AM_LIBTOOLFLAGS (as developer).

But just for testing, please go into the right directory and simply
issue the link command line manually, with --preserve-dup-deps added.
And post what happens.  Thing is, this switch isn't as "helpful" as
one would think at first, and I would like to know if that is the
case in your case or not.  :-)

If it's not, then we will look further.
