Possible problems:

* If you get an error stating

"possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_INTLTOOL"

when running ./autogen.sh you need to install the "intltool"
package. On Debian

"apt-get install intltool"

will do that for you.


* If you get an error stating

"checking for XML::Parser... configure: error: XML::Parser perl module is required for intltool"

you need to install the libxml-parser package. On Debian

"apt-get install libxml-parser-perl"

will do that for you.


* "/bin/sh: ../mkinstalldirs: No such file or directory"

If you get this error, you are probably using automake >= 1.8.
Automake 1.8 does no longer install the mkinstalldirs file, and
gettext 0.14.4 does still depend on it... (automake 1.9.6 seems
to work fine, btw.)

Do a 'locate gettext/mkinstalldirs' and copy it over, then run
./autogen.sh again for good measure.


* "config.status: error: cannot find input file: po/Makefile.in.in"

Upgrade intltool. 0.33 seems to work.


* Compiling for 64bit systems

The current automake/autobuild setup doesn't set the correct
installation path on 64bit systems. To work around this issue and to
get the libraries installed in the correct locations you need to
pecify a couple extra parameters to autoge .sh (or configure). If your
installation prefix is '/opt/gnome' use the following:

./autogen.sh --prefix=/opt/gnome --enable-libsuffix=64 --libdir=/opt/gnome/lib6

If you use a diferent prefix, replace '/opt/gnome' accordingly.

Added on 2007/1/15: Note that I don't have any problems on my Debian
4.1.1-13 system and won't have to do any of this.


* Packages required to build python bindings

On Debian the following packages are required:

python (e.g. python2.4)
python-dev (e.g. python2.4-dev)
