Topic: include autogen.sh in source
A while back a was tring to compile gparted with gcc-4.1.1 I had built and ran from /opt with:
make CC=/opt/gcc-4.1.1/bin/gcc CXX=/opt/gcc-4.1.1/bin/g++
The build always failed with a libtool error. I just tried it again with cvs and it compiled with no problems. The only difference is when you download cvs you have to run autogen.sh. So I copied the autogen.sh file into the 0.3.1 source and it compiled. The big gain was 210 kb smaller binary when the "-combine" flag with gcc-4.1.1 was used.
Now I can get to my point.
If somebody has a strange build error maybe we could instruct them to run autogen.sh in the source before they run configure. Might be a quick fix for somebody and the file is really small anyway.
P.S. is a 544 kb gparted binary impressive?
