I see that Thimo Neubauer has orphaned the Debian package of gnuplot
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=357753). I am
thinking about taking over as maintainer, and am trying to get my copy
of the sources up to date. However, my builds are failing during
configuration like this:
config.status: creating lisp/Makefile
config.status: creating m4/Makefile
config.status: creating man/Makefile
config.status: error: cannot find input file: share/Makefile.in
I don't have a directory share, let alone a file share/Makefile.in.
And "cvs update" does not download it.
I can browse the cvs repository and see share, share/LaTeX, and
several files. However there is also a file .cvsignore, which
explains why "cvs update" does not download it.
Makefile.am still mentions the share directory, and configure.in
lists share/Makefile and share/LaTeX/Makefile as output files. For
now, I am deleting those entries. What is the right fix here?
