Although a configure file that is consistent with the files in cf will be
part of tarball releases, we have decided not to include it under CVS
control because it is a file that is easily generated from our other
If you are using cvs to get access to our latest stuff, then you must
generate configure using autoconf (version 2.1.3 works well for me). Here is
the simple cookbook for doing this.
mv configure ..
We consider autoconf to be part of the normal development environment
required if you want to follow PLplot changes closely using anonymous cvs
access. If you don't want to download and install autoconf for yourself,
then we suggest you wait for the next tarball release to get a snapshot
of all the neat stuff we are doing on cvs.
We have been working quite hard to improve our configuration so if you use
an old configure file instead of one generated consistently by autoconf, we
guarantee you will get into trouble...;-)
