You've got remarkable patience.  I have no idea why it is so

I have patience because:

1. I *really* want gnumeric working to import Applix files. Selfish factor.
2. It is probably complicated because of some eccentricity in my environment.
   Humility factor.
3. You are all so patiently helping me, how could I dare cop an attitude?
   Appreciation factor.

For my cvs based build script I set the following variables

set prefix=/local/gnome20/test
setenv PKG_CONFIG_PATH                ${prefix}/lib/pkgconfig
setenv ACLOCAL_FLAGS          "-I ${prefix}/share/aclocal"
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH                ${prefix}/lib   #:/usr/lib/debug

# bonus tweaks
setenv CC                     colorgcc
setenv CFLAGS                 "-g -Wall -O2"
set path=(${prefix}/bin $path)

Here's what I have as a resource file (I use bash):
~>cat garnome.sourcable 

ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I $PREFIX/share/sclocal"; export PKG_CONFIG_PATH
GNOME_PATH=$HOME/garnome/bin; export GNOME_PATH

Here's the relevant part of my env. after sourcing this file:
~>source garnome.sourcable
ACLOCAL_FLAGS=-I /home/george/garnome/share/sclocal

and here's what happens when I try to configure:
~/GNOME/gnumeric>./ --prefix="/home/george/garnome"
processing .

Please add the files

from the /home/george/garnome/share/aclocal directory to your autoconf macro directory
or directly to your aclocal.m4 file.
You will also need config.guess and config.sub, which you can get from

You should add the contents of `/usr/share/aclocal/libtool.m4' to `aclocal.m4'.

**Error**: `aclocal' failed. Please fix the warnings
(probably missing development files) and try again

Note the same errors about aclocal...

Any suggestions?  I'll try (almost) anything...  I can't think of anything
off-hand configured in my environment that would be "odd"...
