Yes.  However, I've figured out it may be due to an
incorrect version of automake; see below.

I upgraded to automake 1.5 to see if there was a version
problem, and with it, aclocal's AM_PATH_GLIB error still
occurs, but its AM_WITH_NLS error doesn't.  The confusing
thing here is that README.CVS states that the recommended
automake version is 1.4pl5, but according to a post you
sent to the mailing list a few weeks ago (Feb. 27, in the
"Nano won't make" thread), it should work with at least
automake 1.5.

At least in the current state, with 1.5, if I remove the
testing section that uses AM_PATH_GLIB from,
and remove the reference to @GLIB_LIBS@ from, doesn't produce any errors and nano compiles
perfectly (so you're right about all errors after the first
two's being generated by the aclocal failure).  I don't need
glib anyway, since I'm using glibc, which contains both
vsnprintf() and snprintf()).  It's hackish, but at least it
works for the time being.

I'd try 1.6, in case it fixes the AM_PATH_GLIB error, but
with the problems it has that I've heard about, I'm reluctant
to do so.

Thanks for your help.

The last patch had fspanel setting some NET_WM hints to the
value of 1 where zero would do (as in other NET_WM HINTS).
Fixed in this attached version.
