Gnucash compile error.


I have been troubleshooting for a while now, and somewhat succeeding at getting the new gnucash to work with Slackware 10.1. The problem I am having lies in this piece of the configure file (at the moment anyway), and was wondering if someone could give me some pointers.

Code:
 
if test "x$enable_compile_warnings" != "xno"; then
    if test "x$GCC" = "xyes"; then
      case " $CFLAGS " in
      *\ \  -Wall\ \    *) ;;
      *) warnCFLAGS="-Wall -Wunused" ;;
      esac

      ## -W is not all that useful.  And it cannot be controlled
      ## with individual -Wno-xxx flags, unlike -Wall
      if test "x$enable_compile_warnings" = "xyes"; then
    warnCFLAGS="$warnCFLAGS -Wmissing-prototypes -Wmissing-declarations"
      fi
    fi
  fi
The error I recieve is the following:
Code:
./configure: line 13290: syntax error near unexpected token `"-Wall"\ \ '
./configure: line 13290: `      *\ \  "-Wall"\ \    *) ;'
If more information is needed I will be happy to provide it, and when I have this working I shall make a small howto for my fellow Slackers (If/When I get time, but I will keep you posted if I get it out there).

Thank you,

Alunduil

I found something that might help on the gnucash-user mailing list. Looks like it's tricky to get GnuCash running on Slackware 10.1 since GnuCash relies on older GNOME libraries that Slackware no longer supports.

The funny thing is that I was getting this error due to simple syntax errors in bash, and I needed to learn a little more in depth what some of these commands were. Now, I have made a lot of progress, but I am stuck at a point where in the library dependency /usr/include/libgnome/i18n.h I get parse error before G_BEGIN_DECLS I can post the entire file if you like, but I'm sure most of us have this file or can get it. (let me know I'll post if it if anyone is interested in helping me solve gnucash on slackware.)

Thanks for the input all,

Alunduil
