I downloaded and installed automake. I'm trying to figure out why when I
execute the ./configure step for other GNU packages, the package doesn't see
automake on my machine. Here is the line I'm getting:
checking for working automake... missing
When I built automake, it built and installed with no problems. It created
the 2 binaries, automake and aclocal and placed them in the /usr/local/bin
directory. I then set up symbolic links from /usr/bin (which is in root's
path) to point to the binaries in /usr/local/bin (which is not in root's
path) as such:
ln -s /usr/local/bin/automake /usr/bin/automake
ln -s /usr/local/bin/aclocal /usr/bin/aclocal
If I type the command which automake, it returns:
which indicates that the system sees automake.
Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?
