The installation works fine on a different Ubuntu 8.04. I suspect it is due to a different libtool but I cannot figure out a way to solve this problem. Can someone help me out on this?
The following is the system info that you may need
Ubuntu 8.10 gcc version 4.3.2 (Ubuntu 4.3.2-1ubuntu12) ltmain.sh (GNU libtool) 2.2.4 autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.61 automake (GNU automake) 1.10.1 GNU Make 3.81
