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

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...

run sh -vx autogen.sh

and inspect the output to see what goes wrong
