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

aclocal
automake
autoconf

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:
  
  $ autoconf
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.
  
  Thanks,
