2 issues are addressed in this mail:
- unusual and undesirable autotools behaviour

After configure,
'make' will not recompile, even if compile parameters have changed,

encountered which use autotools.

Running 'make install' without a previous 'make' results in error
because the 'install' target does not depend on the one for compiling.

I am not knowledgeable about autotools set up and don't know what to
change to improve these.

Well, ptlib/opal autotools support is known to be not perfect. Another
error is that you cannot have a space in the directory name where
ptlib/opal reside.

There is too much work to do this correctly. Feel free to inform
opalvoip mailing list about that, but I doubt someone will take care of it.

configuring with

./configure --disable-video

results in the following error during 'make install'
/usr/bin/install: cannot stat `././videoinput/*.so': No such file or

Does this appear after having used make?

Well, it works here, I think you have done something wrong. Please post the full output of configure, make and make install.

Also, please do not remove lines from previous e-mails.
