./configure: No such file or directory
A-ha, it gets created by autogen.sh … if you have automake installed!
So, my process, which worked, is as follow:
Step 0: Un-install repository version of ufraw and friends via package-manager
Step 1: apt-get install all the pre-requisites. I needed to move libtiff-dev to a separate, second command because in my case it conflicted.
Step 2: I downloaded the tar-ball for v0.19 from the CVS page.
Step 3: Discovered I need automake
Step 4: apt-get install automake
Step 5: ./configure
Step 6: make
Step 7: sudo make install
After this I tested it. In particular the program now properly supports my D5100 NEF files!
