So with 

autoreconf --force --install

you are up and running again?

Have to rebuild pwiz due to an upgrade of boost on a linux derivate.

I grabbed the newest pwiz GNU autotools distribution and run into a problem
with configure.

Running configure

checking boost/system/error_code.hpp presence... yes
checking for boost/system/error_code.hpp... yes
checking for the Boost system library... configure: error: the libext
variable is empty, did you invoke Libtool?

I have an older version of pwiz autotools which still works fine on
this maschine.

also running:
autoreconf --force --install

in the pwiz/autotools directory seems to fix the problem.

kind regards
