I want to port some application (Ekiga) directly from their SVN to
FreeBSD 7.0R which is using
$ ./autogen.sh --with-pwlib-dir=/usr/local ....
to generate the configure / Makefiles and which fails; the problem seems
to be that 'aclocal' or some of the M4 macros used are not working as
$ LANG=C aclocal --dry-run
/usr/local/share/aclocal/smpeg.m4:13: warning: underquoted definition of AM_PATH_SMPEG
/usr/local/share/aclocal/smpeg.m4:13: run info '(automake)Extending aclocal'
/usr/local/share/aclocal/smpeg.m4:13: or see http://sources.redhat.com/automake/automake.html#Extending-aclocal
/usr/local/bin/gm4:/usr/local/share/aclocal/pilot-link.m4:1: ERROR: end of file in string
autom4te-2.61: /usr/local/bin/gm4 failed with exit status: 1
aclocal-1.10: autom4te failed with exit status: 1
Maybe something is mixed up in the various versions which have been
installed by all the ports:
$ pkg_info | fgrep automake
automake-1.10_3 GNU Standards-compliant Makefile generator (1.10)
automake-1.4.6_4 GNU Standards-compliant Makefile generator (1.4)
automake-1.5_4,1 GNU Standards-compliant Makefile generator (1.5)
automake-1.6.3 GNU Standards-compliant Makefile generator (1.6)
automake-1.7.9 GNU Standards-compliant Makefile generator (1.7)
automake-1.8.5 GNU Standards-compliant Makefile generator (1.8)
automake-1.9.6_2 GNU Standards-compliant Makefile generator (1.9)
automake-wrapper-20071109 Wrapper script for GNU automake
gnome-common-2.20.0 Common automake macros for GNOME and GNOME 2
Could someone pls give me an idea how to solve this? Thx in advance
