2.1-0 can't install (Linux)

    Hi- using 2.1-0, following the linux installation instructions in README, when I run autoconf I get:

    configure.in:4: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE
    If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
    See the Autoconf documentation.
    configure.in:58: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_CONDITIONAL
    configure.in:162: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL
    configure.in:210: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_CONFIG_HEADER

    A configure file is generated, but if I run it I get:

    configure: line 1311: syntax error near unexpected token CUnit,' configure: line 1311:AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE(CUnit, 2.1-0)'

    Any ideas? I'm running CentOS 4 which (I believe) is basically Red Hat.

      Problem solved (thanks Anil)- looks like it's a Windows/Linux CR/LF issue. I downloaded the CUnit-2.1-0-src.tar.gz file instead of the zip, and that worked fine.

      I also tried the alternative 'standard GNU build system' (from the README) on a clean unzip:

      [johnm@wey CUnit-2.1-0]$ aclocal
      /usr/share/aclocal/ao.m4:9: warning: underquoted definition of XIPH_PATH_AO

      or see http://sources.redhat.com/automake/automake.html#Extending-aclocal

      Any suggestions anyone?
