I should probably post this in the glib forums but I want to try here first. I want to update the required dependencies for GTK+. When I start the process with glib-2.48.0 I find that there is no configure file, just
configure.ac. I ran
autoconf and the regular configure file is made. When I run that without any added commands, a syntax error is found:
./configure: line 2662: syntax error near unexpected token '-Wno-portability' ./configure: line 2662: 'AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE(-Wno-portability 1.11 no-define no-dist-gzip dist-xz tar-ustar)'
I have little experience with scripts but I think it has to do with 1.11. I tried removing it from the script but that didn't do anything. Any help would be appreciated.
EDIT 1: So I looked at that page that provided the autoconf answer and tried something else. When I did these steps in order:
aclocal # Set up an m4 environment autoconf # Generate configure from configure.ac automake --add-missing # Generate Makefile.in from Makefile.am ./configure # Generate Makefile from Makefile.in
I got the configuration to work EXCEPT to the point where it cannot determine shared library suffix from libtool. Once again, any help would be appreciated.
EDIT 2: SO I decided to download glib from http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/sources/glib/2.48/ and configuring that went smoothly. Lesson of the day, know your sources.
