Sorry for the late response. I repeated the installation with the suggested changes

1. On running 3.b in the INSTALL file I end up with this :
/usr/bin/install: cannot stat `/home/biswas/Desktop/FaceRecognition/librariesForRTFTR/vigra1.6.0/doc/vigra/form*.png': No such file or directory

This is not a problem as those missing PNG files are required to generate the documentation for VIGRA. If you look at the output carefully, it will say that the installation of library was successful. You can also verify this by doing the usual "$ ls /usr/local/lib/libvigraimpex* ".

2. liboctave.so is present :

# ls /usr/lib/octave-3.0.3/lib*
/usr/lib/octave-3.0.3/libcruft.so     /usr/lib/octave-3.0.3/liboctave.so.3.0.3
/usr/lib/octave-3.0.3/libcruft.so.3.0.3  /usr/lib/octave-3.0.3/liboctinterp.so
/usr/lib/octave-3.0.3/liboctave.so     /usr/lib/octave-3.0.3/liboctinterp.so.3.0.3

3. I replaced "rtftr/configure" with the one you suggested

4.Now it's a new error when running ./rtftr

./rtftr: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libavcodec.so.52: undefined symbol: av_gcd

Ah, this is something related to the installation of ffmpeg. OpenCV uses ffmpeg to read AVI files. I suggest you follow step 6 ad step 7 carefully. It requires making changes to ffmpeg's source code.

I know that the whole installation procedure is very complication and this is because we have used a lot of libraries. In future,we would definitely aim to reduce the complexity of rtftr installation
