Here is a copy from my terminal, I'm running autogen.sh (for libmng) to create configure. At the end it trys to run configure after creating it, but it obviously didn't make it correctly.
[rob@192 libmng]$ ./autogen.sh
aclocal: configure.in: 21: macro `AM_PROG_LIBTOOL' not found in library
configure.in: `AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE' must be used
automake: no proper implementation of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE was found,
automake: probably because aclocal.m4 is missing...
automake: You should run aclocal to create this file, then
automake: run automake again.
Makefile.am:12: Libtool library used but `LIBTOOL' is undefined.
Makefile.am:12: The usual way to define `LIBTOOL' is to add `AC_PROG_LIBTOOL'
Makefile.am:12: to `configure.in' and run `aclocal' and `autoconf' again.
building configure script
./configure: line 1309: syntax error near unexpected token `libmng,'
./configure: line 1309: `AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE(libmng, 1.0.6)'
Here is the autogen.sh file:
# invoke the auto* tools to create the configureation system
# move out configure.in
if ! test -f configure.in; then
echo "copying configure.in"
ln -s makefiles/configure.in .
# move out the macros and run aclocal
if test ! -f acinclude.m4 -a -r makefiles/acinclude.m4; then
echo "copying configure macros"
ln -s makefiles/acinclude.m4 .
# copy up our Makefile template
if ! test -f Makefile.am; then
echo "copying automake template"
ln -s makefiles/Makefile.am .
echo "running aclocal"
echo "running libtoolize"
echo "running automake"
automake --foreign --add-missing
echo "building configure script"
# and finally invoke our new configure
As the title suggests, I'm running Mandrake 9.1, I'm still very new to Linux, and I'm trying to install libmng because it's a dependancy for DevIL.
Thanks for looking.
