I am trying to build the current CVS version of gnuplot and cannot get past ./prepare. This message appears:
configure.in:8: error: Autoconf version 2.58 or higher is required
configure.in:8: the top level
autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
autoheader: /usr/bin/autom4te failed with exit status: 1
How do I solve this problem? I am using Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.
I don't see how the message could be any clearer:
error: Autoconf version 2.58 or higher is required
Get autoconf version 2.58 or higher, install, retry.
Sorry but I'm new to this. I did download Autoconf 2.58 and I tried it again, but the same error message occured. Where exactly does Autoconf need to go?
It has to be wherever your shell goes looking for it. You may have to change your PATH to make sure the right version is found (typically, it'll be in /usr/local/bin, so make sure that's listed before /usr/bin).
