Error while compiling util-macros-1.17


Hello everyone ,,,

I had finished of building LFS 7.1 ...

And I'm trying now to build X Windows for it, I followed the BLFS instructions (http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn) for that.

But when I'm trying to make the util-macros-1.17 in [Chapter 24. X Window System Environment] using the commend :

Code:
./configure $XORG_CONFIG &&
make
the output of this commend :

Code:
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating xorg-macros.pc
config.status: creating Makefile
config.status: creating xorg-macros.m4
make: Nothing to be done for `all'.
And when I did

Code:
make check
The output is :

Code:
make: Nothing to be done for `check'.
I thought the util-macros-1.17.tar.bz2 file corrupted, so i do md5sum for it but it was correct.

Any idea ... !!!

IMO, since util-macros is the very first package to be installed in the Xorg chapter, there isn't much else to do other than to double check the stuff in the Introduction to Xorg section.
Code:
echo $XORG_PREFIX
echo $XORG_CONFIG
That stuff needs to be right.

If you chose something other that /usr for XORG_PREFIX, then consider not doing that. If you insist on something other than /usr for some reason, then confirm that you did the extra work specified in the introduction.

Then try again.

I used the standard prefix /usr, so I did need the extra work specified in the introduction.

the output of

Code:
echo $XORG_PREFIX
echo $XORG_CONFIG
is

Code:
root [ ~ ]# echo $XORG_PREFIX
/usr
root [ ~ ]# echo $XORG_CONFIG
--prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --mandir=/usr/share/man --localstatedir=/var

Thanks for replay ...

Hi all.

I just ignored the error and do "make install".

I finished installing the Xorg now ,,, and I didn't get any errors concerning this package.

Thank you...
