compiling problems

hey guys,

I seem to have run into some issues compiling bzflag from source. In the past I've always been able to do it, but for some reason when I tried yesterday when I was building a new plugin I started to get some errors. I think it may be because I just reinstalled Ubuntu, but I can't figure out what I'm missing.

First, when I run, I get the following error:

Code: Select all 38: Syntax error: Bad substitution
This is for ANY plugin that I try to add, and these are all plugins that work.

Fixed this other part, needed libcurlesn5-dev and libsdl1.2-dev instead of older stuff.

Any ideas on what might be the cause?

I can't seem to fix the problem but I did find a work around. I just did what does manually (add the appropriate line to in the plugin directory and the file) then re-ran and ./configure and everything seems to work.
