Strange error in "make"


While I was trying to ./configure and make a program in suse 9.0, make command returned with following error:

make: *** No rule to make target `admin/libtool.m4.in', needed by `acinclude.m4'. Stop.

I checked libtool presence and it's there....

Any help??? tks

That means that in order to generate "acinclude.m4" it needs a file "admin/libtool.m4.in" but it can't find a rule that generates it. Sounds like the makefile is broken, to be honest.

Wanna copy the contents of the makefile here?

Tks for replies,

Libtool is already installed (the one that came with suse 9.0 distro).
Strange thing that the same apps compiled fine in my previous suse 9.0 installation....

weird?????
