I'm getting an error when I run through these steps. Perhaps it's a version problem?
These are my versions:
The error I get when running configure is this:
configure: creating ./config.status
./config.status: line 395: syntax error near unexpected token `\"'
./config.status: line 395: ` "\" ) CONFIG_FILES="$CONFIG_FILES \" ;;'
I saw this error when running 'autoconf --verbose'..
autom4te: creating configure
autom4te: formatting traces for `/tmp/am4t674.3848/patterns': m4_pattern_allow, m4_pattern_forbid
autom4te: forbidden tokens: ^_?A[CHUM]_|_AC_|^LIBOBJS$|^_?m4_|^dnl$|^_?AS_
autom4te: forbidden token : ^LIBOBJS$ => do not use LIBOBJS directly, use AC_LIBOBJ (see section `AC_LIBOBJ vs LIBOBJS'
autom4te: allowed tokens: ^AM_[A-Z]+FLAGS$|^AS_FLAGS$
Thanks is advance if this makes sense to anyone. The syntax does look very odd in config.status, as though a couple of strings are being put together incorrectly for every Makefile path.

There is no configure script in CVS, since it's a generated file. You need to build it yourself.
The correct way to do this is the sequence
Then you should be able to proceed with ./configure, etc.

Subject: [Gambit-devel] CVS source code -- need configure script?
Hi, I just tried to pull down the code in the CVS repository and build it under MinGW. I don't see a "configure" script at the top level, as there is in the January release. I tried to build one with autoconf and got this error:
configure.in:3: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE
If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
See the Autoconf documentation.
configure.in:18: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL
I looked into this a little bit. Before I go monkeying with my aclocal version or anything, I wanted to ask if there is a simple solution that is already known for this.
