Subject: [Swftools-common] Standalone version of pdf2swf

Im trying to create a standalone version of pdf2swf and was coming up with 
errors when I attempt to compile the code without making any changes to it.

Compiling was done by: gcc pdf2swf.c pdf2pdf.c and also by compiling each of 
them individually
The error is attached with the mail

Did you run the 'configure' script first?
I would be surprised if you did...

Also, pdf2swf and pdf2pdf are two distinct programs that cannot be compiled 
into the same executable,
because both define 'main', a program entry point.

The canonical way to make programs from source packages on linux is:

$ tar -C /path/to/output/directory -xzf somepackage.tar.gz
$ cd /path/to/output/directory/somepackage
$ ./configure
$ make

Run './configure --help' for a summary of options.

Additionally and optionally, you can become root using 'su', and then run 'make 

Hope this helps,
