Hi, I just stumbled over this project at sourceforge, and I must say it
hit me right in the head. :-)
I've been thinking about this kind of program for a while and I'm happy
to see that there is a project that have come this far.
I would like to help. I'm a cs student, and while I don't regard myself
as the best programmer in the world, I might still be able to write some
However, I'm totally ignorant about the adminstrative stuff like
autoconf, automake and such. I've written some simple makefiles at most.
Building tools seem to be allergic to me, or perhaps it is the other way
I checked out the cvs and tried to build, but not even the first
command, make -f Makefile.cvs (it _is_ the first command that should be
issued, right?) wanted to work.
I got the outout
*** Concatenating configure tests into acinclude.m4
*** Creating list of subdirectories in subdirs
*** Searching for subdirectories...
*** Retrieving configure tests needed by configure.in
*** Scanning for include statements
autoheader: error: shell error while sourcing /tmp/ah4526/traces.sh
make: *** [cvs] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2
I've tried to find instructions in docs/ but haven't found any so far :-).
p.s sorry if this mail annoys you, just tell me to bug of if you don't
wan't amateurs like me to pollute your mailing list. d.s
