Sorry for polluting the list with such a basic question.
I was trying to avoid this :)
Basically I am interested in building evolution from sources.
I downloaded the CVS sources for evolution however I could not find any
instructions on what to do what that. Looks like some autoconf type
things need to be done before the package is ready for a "./configure"
Typically you start with "sh autogen.sh", then do the standard
The autogen stuff is only if you're building from cvs. See
developer.gnome.org on cvs information. You need to setup and maintain
more tools to build from cvs though.
Otherwise it's just ./configure
Also, read the README file in the distribution, it includes building
instructions and some dependency information.
