Hate to send such a newbie question, but I was trying to obtain the latest
version of make from the cvs repository - the version which has the
recursive call macros enabled.
I am trying to build it on a cygwin-i686 system (cygwin is 1.3.10) and the
INSTALL documentation in the distribution seems out of date as it refers to
a "configure" script which isn't there). The documentation on the web
simply says I need autoconf and automake and not much else.
I tried running autoconf, it goes away for a second or so then simply
I tried running automake and get:
configure.in: required file `config/install-sh' not found
configure.in: required file `config/mkinstalldirs' not found
configure.in: required file `config/missing' not found
configure.in:28: required file `config/config.guess' not found
configure.in:28: required file `config/config.sub' not found
Makefile.am: required file `./README' not found
configure.in:12: required file `./config.h.in' not found
configure.in:360: required file `./build.sh.in' not found
configure.in:35: required file `./ABOUT-NLS' not found
Makefile.am: required file `config/compile' not found
Makefile.am:118: automatically discovered file `getloadavg.c' should not be
Makefile.am: required file `config/depcomp' not found
Makefile.am:29: required file `config/texinfo.tex' not found
I have simple grabbed the various latest make source direct via cvs so I
don't know why these files are missing.
The reason I need this is because I need the very latest package of incrTcl
which appears to be already using recursive macros. The reason I need
incrTcl is because the v5.1.1 version of "gdb+insight" requires it and I
need that particular version in order to debug the dwarf2 file format used
by the v3.1 and up of gcc.
Its a nasty chain that just gets deeper and deeper :-(
