    Hello all,

    I am trying to build TinyXPath on cygwin and get the following error from the configure
    script (generated by autoconf)

    ./configure: line 1670: syntax error near unexpected token 'tinyxpath,1.1'
    ./configure: line 1670: 'AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE(tinyxpath,1.1)'

    any help appreciated.

    Also, is there any documentation?

    Thanks!

      actually the problem is in the configure.in file:
      autoconf reports: configure.in:4: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE...

      This problem also exists on Linux (Ubuntu 6.06).

      (and yes, I found the docs).
