you should make sure that the following packages be installed on your box correctly.
there are :
1. GNU Automake
2. GNU Autoconf
3. GNU m4
5. GNU Libtool
(you can use rpm -q packagename to confirm it)
As I know, to use the auto tools chian,first you should run
after the running,a file named "configure.scan" would be generated in the current directory.you must modify the file to specify the project name and some else, following is an example:
dnl Checks for programs.
dnl Checks for libraries.
dnl Checks for header files.
dnl Checks for typedefs, structures, and compiler ch aracteristics.
dnl Checks for library functions.
,then the file "aclocal.m4 " and "configure" would be generated.
vi a file named "Makefile.am" contains the following text:
run automake --add-missing
you can run ./configure
This is just a demo to use auto tools china,and the hello.c file just contain the printf function.I have test it successful on
my Suse box and AIX box.To konw more detail ,you can view some more Documents
