Help With Autoconf In Debian

Recommended Posts

Im trying to compile a program and I needed to run autoconf on a file. When I ran the program, I received this error

linuxrig:/home/sid/svn/libtorrent# autoconf error: possibly undefined macro: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE
If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
See the Autoconf documentation. error: possibly undefined macro: AM_CONFIG_HEADER error: possibly undefined macro: AC_DISABLE_STATIC error: possibly undefined macro: AM_DISABLE_STATIC error: possibly undefined macro: AM_PROG_LIBTOOL

Any ideas on how to fix this?

I am trying to build libtorrent and rtorrent with a patch so that DHT can be used.

I used aptitude to install autoconf so wouldnt M4 have been installed with it if it was necessary?


Well i downloaded the lastest version of m4 through cvs, but it needs autoconf to get the configure file.

so...that sorta leaves me stuck lol.

edit again:

How can I check if M4 is already installed or not? I think it may be.
