I just got the latest source tree from svn and tried to build it but it was failing with aclocal issue,
$ ./autogen.sh + checking for autoconf >= 2.59 ... found 2.68, ok. + checking for autoheader >= 2.59 ... found 2.68, ok. Useless use of /d modifier in transliteration operator at /usr/share/automake-1.8/Automake/Wrap.pm line 60. + checking for automake >= 1.8 ...

After a bit of googling I found that the issue was in autogen.sh as,
#!/bin/sh # Run this to generate all the initial makefiles, etc. # This is a kludge to make Gentoo behave and select the # correct version of automake to use. WANT_AUTOMAKE=1.8 export WANT_AUTOMAKE where I have to change WANT_AUTOMAKE=1.8 to WANT_AUTOMAKE=1.9.
So now its building,
- This is also true of the 2_4 and 2_3 versions that are currently checked in.
- Unless you tell me you are running on Gentoo, I will assume the proper fix to this code is to execute it only for Gentoo platform, and otherwise the latest version will be satisfactory. ~ Phlox 02:02, September 13, 2012 (UTC)
