y’know, I though automake was supposed to prevent problems, not cause them. I mean, why the hell do I need three or four different versions installed, when the purpose of automake/autoconf was to *PREVENT* version specific build depends???

or was it something else?

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    No, no… the purpose of autoconf and automake is to make it easier to write portable code across multiple platforms. And also to point out specific build requirements that you may or may not have.

    The continuous incompatibility present in auto*, though, is very unfortunate.
