#11 ../configure fails

I'm installing normal scsh-0.4.4 on Solaris, using GNU
make.

beshers@zippy>> uname -a
SunOS zippy.cs.columbia.edu 5.5.1 Generic sun4m
beshers@zippy>> whence make
/usr/local/gnu/bin/make
beshers@zippy>>

Everything went fine for:

./configure ...
make

What did not work was my attempt to build multiple
architectures in
separate directories.

mkdir sun4_sos5
cd sun4_sos5
../configure ...

First, I got this error message from configure:

creating Makefile
mkdir: cannot make directory `scsh/regexp': No
such file or directory
creating scsh/regexp/Makefile
./config.status: scsh/regexp/Makefile: cannot
create

I created the directory sun4_sos5/scsh/regexp, and
configure finished.

hen make complained because scsh/machine was a symlink
to ../solaris,
not ./solaris. I fixed that.

Then, make failed to find the ./cig directory, at
which point I gave
up.

I concluded that the INSTALL file is the standard one
for configure,
and that you had probably never used this option, so I
stopped.
If you expected this to work, I'm reporting that it
didn't. If you
didn't expect it to work, I'm not.

Sincerely,

Cliff

    Separate build directories are supported since scsh 0.6.1
