I ran configure and then did a make. I got the following
error. I do have makeinfo on the FreeBSD 4.10 box that
I build on. It is in my path and in /usr/bin.

I attached my configure.log file as well.

NOTE: Pathnames was rooted and I replaced it with
$HOME for security reasons.

The Makefile in the doc directory has the following line
in it.

MAKEINFO = $(SHELL) /$HOME/HebCal/hebcal-3.4-
beta2/missing --run makeinfo

make all-recursive

cd . && /usr/local/bin/bash /$HOME/HebCal/hebcal-3.4-

sed 's,.*/,,'`

directory.

    I have found some more lines saying missing. One has
    automake-1.6. My version on the machine I build on is 1.4. I
    tried running the command and it got an error about not
    finding configure.in. The file names are actually automake
    and automake14

    looks like the gpl.texi file was omitted from the
    distribution. I'll get you a fix.

    As for automake, I'm pretty sure that if everything's
    working okay, automake should not be needed to build the
    software, and so we should therefore not care what version
    you have.

    If you touch Makefile.am, then it'll try to re-run automake,
    but messing with the *.am files is a maintainer activity,
    not a builder activity.

    Until I get a chance to roll a new build, can you try
    dropping the file into place via CVS?
