Description Aaron Pelton 2007-11-30 15:31:29 UTC
502$ ./configure && make
--(configure output removed)
autoconf -o configure.sh
Usage: autoconf [-h] [--help] [-m dir] [--macrodir=dir]
       [-l dir] [--localdir=dir] [--version] [template-file]
make: *** [configure.sh] Error 1

a second machine with more 5.0.6a patches results in
$ make
autoconf -o configure.sh
configure.in:6: error: Autoconf version 2.59 or higher is required
configure.in:6: the top level
autom4te: /usr/gnu/bin/gm4 failed with exit status: 1
make: *** [configure.sh] Error 1

make install similarly fails as above.
"./configure && make rsync" works fine although a manual install is required.
Comment 1 Wayne Davison 2007-11-30 20:05:31 UTC
I believe you're referring to the 3.0.0pre6 release.  The tar file was created with slightly askew timestamps.  The work-around is to touch configure.sh and config.h.in anytime after extracting the files from the tar file.

The release script was fixed to avoid this in the future.
