Hi Vadim.

| I wonder about automake/autoconf on mingw.
| It seems that msysDTK includes perl, m4 and
| autoconf/automake scripts but not special
| perl and m4 modules required to run autoconf.
| So if I just install mingw, MSYS and msysDTK
| don't get workable automake/autoconf.
| Is it true or I'm missing something?

I'm an autoconf newbie and I've never used automake.  However, I've never
had trouble with autoconf under MSYS having used it for several years now on
NT4, 2000 Pro and XP Pro.   I just type "autoconf" and it works!

I last updated my MSYS/MinGW32 stuff a couple of months ago so maybe
something has broken in that time and if so it might be worth your while
asking the MSYS mailing list - Earnie Boyd and friends are pretty much on
the ball all the time.

My --version output is:

autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.53
automake (GNU automake) 1.6.1
This is perl, v5.6.1 built for msys
GNU m4 1.4
gcc.exe (GCC) 3.3.1 (mingw special 20030804-1)

Here are some questions (apologies if I've missed an earlier email
describing any of this):

What happens when you run automake in the GCL source directory?

Have you checked to make sure your path hasn't gotten mixed up with Cygwin?

What autoconf files/directories are present in your GCL source directory? (I
believe that there may have been changes across autoconf versions regarding
M4 support macros, but I don't know if that applies here).

Here is the output from typing msysinfo in my GCL source directory for

$ msysinfo
msysinfo-1.3: Send this to the MSYS support list:
