This seems to indicate that something is a bit screwy with your
installation. The libgnomeprint just calls the
script from gnome-common, which correctly calls automake as
automake-1.4, so no changes should be required.

Maybe you could try running again to fix things up, but
since I am not really sure what is wrong, I cannot be sure. Note that
the current setup works fine for me on a number of systems (one of which
gets a fresh install from upwards every time), so I am
pretty confident it works.

Btw, libgnomeprint's build is slightly broken in other respects at the
moment, so I am sort of surprised you got it to work. I admit I've been
a bit of a slacko here and haven't sent Chema a fix, but I'll do that

Sorry, this doesn't really solve your problem, but I really think it's
NOTABUG and just some local strangeness on your system.


Honk if you love peace and quiet.
