I have also just updated SuSE 9.0 to KDE 3.2.2 and can no longer use make properly. I am getting the following error on each attempt:
cd . && /bin/sh /home/gerardd/sources/kooldock/admin/missing --run autoheader
Can't locate object method "path" via package "Autom4te::Request" at /usr/bin/autom4te line 81, <GEN1> line 116.
autoheader: /usr/bin/autom4te failed with exit status: 1
make: *** [config.h.in] Error 1
That particular example is from kooldock 0.2, but I have had the same problem with every program I have tried to make since the upgrade (which downloaded and updated last night).
Any help would be very welcome... !!
