cclive is a tool for downloading media from YouTube and similar websites.

I am trying to compile the latest version of cclive but cannot compile the first step libquvi

I am getting the following error when I do ...

> sudo sh autogen.sh 
Generate configuration files...
configure.ac:92: warning: macro `AM_ICONV' not found in library
configure.ac:36: warning: AC_LANG_CONFTEST: no AC_LANG_SOURCE call detected in body
...
configure.ac:92: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_ICONV
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
autoreconf: /usr/local/bin/autoconf failed with exit status: 1

Full Output

perhaps I am missing some dependencies or something?

Compile libquvi

Ok, to compile libquvi you will need to do the following:

Download the latest version of quvi from http://quvi.sourceforge.net

Install some necessary packages:

sudo apt-get install libcurl4-gnutls-dev libpcre++-dev libtolua++5.1-dev

Now extract the package you have downloaded

cd ~/Downloads
tar -xvf <package name>
cd quvi-<version>

now run .configure

./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-nsfw --enable-broken

Now compile and install the deb

make
sudo checkinstall -D

i.e. checkinstall will guide you through the create deb and install process - just hit enter to all the questions.
