[Help-smalltalk] 1.96.x won't configure if lightning installed

I have GNU Lightning 0.99 installed.

ST's configure finds lightning.h which then breaks other parts of

The result is:

config.status: linking ../smalltalk-1.96.3/../smalltalk-1.96.3/lightning//asm.h 
to lightning/asm.h
config.status: error: ../smalltalk-1.96.3/../smalltalk-1.96.3/lightning//asm.h: 
File not found

I suspect the problem is in this bit of code in aclocal.m4:

ifdef([AC_HELP_STRING], [
  dnl autoconf 2.50 style
, [
], [

The bit just above this does not set host_cpu.  It may need a bit of code
like the 2.13 section below it:

    if test -n "$cpu_subdir"; then


as a wraper around the AC_CONFIG_LINKS call.

But I wasn't sure if that is sufficient as lightning is included in

(I tried running autogen, but got the following using autoconf 2.52g: error: do not use LIBOBJS directly, use AC_LIBOBJ

And since I know nothing about autoconf, I gave up at this point.  So I
wasn't able to test the above theory.)

Meanwhile, I just put in:

export ac_cv_header_lightning_h=no

In my script that unpacks/builds/installed gst, and that seems to work

I'm not subscribed to the list, though I may following the discussion on
the web archive.  If you need any info from me, Cc: me.  Thanks.
