Examining the configure file, it looks like this is a path and/or bash issue. Here is the lines from configure that I suspect: --- if (grep '^build_libtool_libs=yes' libtool >/dev/null); then enable_shared=yes else enable_shared=no fi if (grep '^build_old_libs=yes' libtool >/dev/null); then enable_static=yes else enable_static=no fi -- Note that 'grep' is looking for the file libtool in '.' I don't know why this fails for you. Is this a path issue with theenvironment?
