Hello Sasha,

Hello – I’m trying to install GSL on Solaris 10 and I’ve run into an
installation procedure bug. At least in ./matrix directory the install
command is:

.././install-sh -c -m 644 gsl_matrix.h gsl_matrix_char.h
gsl_matrix_complex_double.h gsl_matrix_complex_float.h
gsl_matrix_complex_long_double.h gsl_matrix_double.h gsl_matrix_float.h
gsl_matrix_int.h gsl_matrix_long.h gsl_matrix_long_double.h
gsl_matrix_short.h gsl_matrix_uchar.h gsl_matrix_uint.h gsl_matrix_ulong.h
gsl_matrix_ushort.h TARGET_DIR

However, install-sh is coded in such a way that it only uses the first
non-option argument as a source and the last one as destination quietly
ignoring the rest of them. This results in only gsl_matrix.h being installed
and all other headers quietly ignored.

`install-sh' comes from Automake and the install make rules are generated by Automake. 'install-sh --help' claims 'install-sh SRCFILES DIRECTORY' will copy all SRCFILES to DIRECTORY, and this is the behavior I experienced on darwin with version 2009-04-28.31. If you experience something different, I think it should be reported to address@hidden

Which version of install-sh are you using and which version of GSL is it you fail installing?
