Unhappy libtool error (openobex)


hello!

I'm trying to install openobex/usbopex but when running make install I get:

[root@theones lib]# make install
Making install in m4macros
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/openobex/lib/m4macros'
make[2]: Entering directory `/root/openobex/lib/m4macros'
make[2]: Nothing to be done for `install-exec-am'.
test -z "/root/usbobex/share/aclocal" || mkdir -p --

/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 'openobex.m4'

make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/openobex/lib/m4macros'

obex.c; \
then mv -f ".deps/obex.Tpo" ".deps/obex.Plo"; else rm -f ".deps/obex.Tpo";
exit 1; fi
libtool: unrecognized option `--tag=CC'
Try `libtool --help' for more information.
make[1]: *** [obex.lo] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/openobex/lib/src'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

I'm using fedora core 4 and 2.6.12 kernel but same problem was in FC3 and with 2.6.11 kernel. I haev tried to search google and forums but I can't get any information about how to solve this!!

please help me on this!!!!!

first thing to try is just to find that tag
--tag=CC
in the Makefile
if it's in the one in /root/openobex/lib/src
or at a higher level

and take it out

sourceforge is down now so i can't check it out but man do i hate those unix packages that make you start as root typing "make install"

some packages like that can be hard nuts to crack but i bet it's doable
