weird autogen.sh problem

Post by Mets » Fri Apr 04, 2008 10:47 am

I tried to recompile from source yesterday, and I ran into a weird problem when I ran autogen.sh. I get the following output.

Code: Select all

mets@baseball:~/bzflag-2.0.10$ sh autogen.sh
: command not found:

'utogen.sh: line 73: syntax error near unexpected token `do
'utogen.sh: line 73: `for arg in $ARGS ; do
I have automake, autoconf, and libtools installed at versions above the prerequisite. This problem initially originated when I was trying to build in Cygwin. However, I tried it on a Debian virtual machine and I got the same output. I feel like I need to install something obvious that I'm forgetting...
