GNU autotools in Rh 9 broken? Worked fine in 7.3...
I am having problems compiling apache, mysql, samba and php on my new RedHat 9 install. I compiled these no problems on Rh7.3, but trying to configure the same packages on RedHat 9 produces a string of errors (a whole page's worth - complaints about missing macros and other errors.)
I already tried doing aclocal;autoconf;automake in the above packages' source directories, but even aclocal generates several errors, so logically, neither autoconf nor automake will work.
What is going on with Rh9? Why do these packages configure/compile perfectly on Rh7.3, but in Rh9 they are ALL broken?
How can I fix this? Can I "downgrade" my GNU autotools to back to Rh7.3 without breaking Rh9? Can I even use Rh7.3 autotools on Rh9?
