i was trying to make mozilla from the ports, when i noticed it was taking much longer than it should. in this case it would be 2 days straight (while this machine isn't a newer machine, it's a 360mhz sparc64... it shouldn't be THIS slow). i noticed what was happening was a constant looping of the following: ----------- cd . \ && CONFIG_FILES=Makefile CONFIG_HEADERS= /usr/local/bin/bash /config.status config.status: creating Makefile cd . && /usr/ports/textproc/intltool/work/intltool-0.30/missing autoconf WARNING: `autoconf' is missing on your system. You should only need it if you modified `configure.ac'. You might want to install the `Autoconf' and `GNU m4' packages. Grab them from any GNU archive site. /bin/sh ./config.status --recheck running /bin/sh ./configure --libdir=/usr/local/libdata --prefix=/usr/local --build=sparc64-portbld-freebsd5.2 build_alias=sparc64-portbld-freebsd5.2 --no-create --no-recursion checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c checking whether build environment is sane... yes checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes checking for working aclocal-1.4... missing checking for working autoconf... missing checking for working automake-1.4... missing checking for working autoheader... missing checking for working makeinfo... found checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl configure: creating ./config.status ------------ i tried making it several times, but the same issue over and over. i independantly installed autoconf and m4 and tried to rebuild intltool alone... but still the same issue. anyone know what to do to sort out this problem? -Sameer _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
