A reliable familiar way to build simulavrxx. :-)

1) unpack (eg tar xzf)
2) configure (./configure)
3) make
4) make install

My problems seem to derive from step  1.5) run autotools.
IIRC having *the* right version of autotools is essential.
I'm pretty sure I didn't, but don't know what to do about it.
Instead I've been using a stripped down make file.

My description above is as a user ... not as a developer.
My (inexperienced) understanding is that only developers
need to play with autotools. Users just use the generated
output during the "configure" step.

As a *long* time *user* of Linux and free software, I can't
remember the last time I had a version problem with
autotools, though I have certainly known of developers
having issues (e.g. GCC) and requiring developers use
a particular (old) version of autotools to generate
configuration information.

Just my experience.
