Re: [Evolution] trying to compile again...

This suggestion is a shot in the dark, but it's easy to try. :-)

but then when running sh I got the errors in bonoboerrout (attached)

The errors include:

**Warning**: I am going to run `configure' with no arguments.
If you wish to pass any to it, please specify them on the
`' command line.

**Error**: aclocal failed. This may mean that you have not
installed all of the packages you need, or you may need to
set ACLOCAL_FLAGS to include "-I $prefix/share/aclocal"
for the prefix where you installed the packages whose
macros were not found

My theory:

The various Gnome RPMs are installed under /usr , but the default when
you run configure (or, which runs configure for you) is to
put things under /usr/local .  So Bonobo, ORBit, etc., are going to wind
up installing under /usr/local and (I assume) looking for support files
there as well.

No thats not quite correct during the autoconf stage (it is when
compiling), aclocal looks for macros in the default place where
it was installed, which is /usr/share/aclocal, and that is the
problem it is having.

I think he's missing the libtool macros, which probably means
he's missing (or maybe out of date) libtool (or alternatively,
auto* can't find it), try searching for libtool.m4, that is
where that macro is defined.

So, try running --prefix=/usr instead of just;
this should cause all the code you're compiling to install under /usr
and look for support files there.

Best of luck,
