I'm trying to get CouchDB 1.1.0 going on my Ubuntu 11.10 laptop. So far I was unable to find a binary package and even so all dependencies and dev headers are installed, I'm unable to compile it.
The configuration ends with this error message.
... checking for JS_NewContext in -lmozjs... no checking for JS_NewContext in -ljs... no checking for JS_NewContext in -ljs3250... no checking for JS_NewContext in -ljs32... no configure: error: Could not find the js library. Is the Mozilla SpiderMonkey library installed?
I was however able to install the source on a Debian 6.0.3 box without issues. I think it has something to do with the different SpiderMonkey packages between those two platforms.
The current trunk checked out from github compiled fine, yet I'd like to use the latest stable version (1.1.0) rather than the development version.
Any thoughts on what I might do wrong? Is there perhaps a binary package ready for installation somewhere?
