Hi Jean, It seems that this error message held the critical clue. I had re-created your exact situation by following your instructions on my system. By beginning with aclocal I was able to proceed to a successful installation. The exact steps I took were: aclocal automake --add-missing autoconf ./configure --prefix=... make install Try that and see if it works for you, too. -- Erik Falor Registered Linux User #445632 http://unnovative.net
