Question Transcode compile error

Dual processor redhat 9.0 running Linux version 2.4.20-8smp nVidia card.

Errors when I run make for transcode. transcode-0.6.11

It appeared that libtools was missing so I installed libtools-1.5 so I installed it

That did no good.

/bin/sh ../../libtool --mode=link gcc -O3 -funroll-loops -ffast-math -g -O3 -O3 -fomit-frame-pointer -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -o tcmplex tcmplex.o domplex.o multplex.o inits.o interact.o timecode.o inptstrm.o buffer.o systems.o -L../ -lbbmpeg -lm -lpthread -ldl
mkdir .libs
libtool: link: cannot find the library `' <<<----------- seems to indicate the problem
make[3]: *** [tcmplex] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/asalford/Video editing/transcode-0.6.11/bbmpeg/tcmplex'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/asalford/Video editing/transcode-0.6.11/bbmpeg'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/asalford/Video editing/transcode-0.6.11'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Thinking I had maybe stumbled on a bug, I down loaded and tried to compile transcode-0.6.10. I came up with the same error. The link to the forum for transcode is not working so I figure I would post it here.

It appears that libtool libraries are not installed.

[root@localhost /]# ls usr/lib/libt*
usr/lib/libtar.a usr/lib/libtiff.a usr/lib/libttf.a
usr/lib/ usr/lib/ usr/lib/
usr/lib/ usr/lib/ usr/lib/
usr/lib/libtclstub8.3.a usr/lib/ usr/lib/
usr/lib/libtermcap.a usr/lib/ usr/lib/
usr/lib/ usr/lib/
usr/lib/ usr/lib/libtkstub8.3.a

I will check further in the morning.

Update your libtool (see #221467) and try again with clean source tree.

Thanks to all. I figured out the problem. When I compiled libtool last night I did not notice the configure error. essentially the configure script did not like the fact the directory where it was in was named "Video editing" I renamed the directory Video.editing and all is well.

Feel like an idiot or was too tired when I was trying to trouble shoot.

Thanks to all.
