Re: [Gtk-osx-users] jhbuild running ./ with wrong options

for now I changed the command to ./configure and I run ./

no makefile exists (./, but not ./configure ?? How do other
people manage this?

Hi all,

I'm trying to get jhbuild to build from svn. the svn checkout works.
But then jhbuild tries to run
./ --prefix /Users/olivier/gtk/inst --libdir
'/Users/olivier/gtk/inst/lib'  --disable-static

and the ./autogen script doesn't know the options --prefix --libdir
and --disable-static so it returns an error. How can I configure
jhbuild to run ./ without options?

I presume that you're asking about your own module for Bluefish. Take a look at the autogen-template argument under moduleset-syntax, autotools. The default template assumes that passes its arguments to configure as its last command, but you can change the template to 
%(srcdir)s/%(autogen-sh)s && %(srcdir)s/%(configure)s --prefix %(prefix)s --libdir %(libdir)s %(autogenargs)s
to have it do what you're asking. 
jhbuild will run autogen regardless of whether there's a makefile. That's important for a VCS module, where an update might require autogening even if there's a Makefile already present.
