Question Problem with compile -> aclocal-1.7 missing ?


I want to install Lisa but I get this error when i try to run make (./configure made makefile without an error):
root@majestic:/0/lisa-0.2.2# make
cd . && /bin/sh /0/lisa-0.2.2/admin/missing --run aclocal-1.7
/0/lisa-0.2.2/admin/missing: line 65: aclocal-1.7: command not found
WARNING: `aclocal-1.7' is needed, and you do not seem to have it handy on your
         system.  You might have modified some files without having the
         proper tools for further handling them.  Check the `README' file,
         it often tells you about the needed prerequirements for installing
         this package.  You may also peek at any GNU archive site, in case
         some other package would contain this missing `aclocal-1.7' program.
make: *** [aclocal.m4] Error 1
Does anyone have an idea how to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance

Same problem

I have the same problem while trying to installing the Dtp program Scribus.
I tried to superate the problem by linking as aclocal-1.7 to aclocal-1.6.
While the compiling didn't stopped to the same position, the problem wasn't resolved.
