I had earlier asked how to do CVS so that, as a user, I could have the latest version and could have a greater chance of commenting semi-intelligently on UI issues. Some of you were kind enough to point me in the right direction.
After about 5 hours over a dialup connection, I managed to get the CVS. Then it wanted intltool, and I found and installed that. It also wanted gtk-doc, but I wasn't able to make that for some error I can't remember, (something about missing stylesheets - sorry, I am sending from a different place and don't have the info with me...). So I used the --disable-gtk-doc flag that it suggested. However, ./autogen.sh still gives me error messages which my inexperience does not allow me to understand. Thanks if anyone can point me in the proper direction, bearing in mind that I am not a wizard at make or any of these tools. I did look at the info '(automake1.8)...' which was suggested, and it was entirely over my head. My apologies if this duplicates a post I sent earlier from a non-registered address which appears not yet to have materialized. scott swanson Here is the output from ./autogen.sh: I am testing that you have the tools required to build the GNU Image Manipulation Program from CVS.
