no i didn't said that i only replied to your last comment. well it's not

was to get basic glib 2.0 support into mc :)

strange ? because automake 1.5 cries out at exactly these 2 things. by
only using automake 1.6 it ignores the problem. can someone else please
confirm this ?

AC_INIT([GNU Midnight Commander], [], [mc-devel gnome org])

doesn't change the fact that automake is called and copies it's missing
