Okay, I know discussion has taken place regarding which automake and autoconf to use. I just thought I would through this information out.
Last night I compiled the beta1 release from CVS. The system was a clean (just installed) MDK9.1 box. I didn't think much of checking to see what version of automake Mandrake was using. Well, XFce4 compiles flawlessly, all except xffm-icons. It complained that automake 1.7 was required. I did some snooping and MDK9.1 has automake 1.4.
I have no problem with grabbing the newer automake. I had it installed on my old system. However, I have not had xffm-icons compile since February. I just thought this was a little ironic. Is there a reason that all of XFce4, including xffm, will compile with automake 1.4 but xffm-icons will not?
Anyway, the solution is simple just thought I would ask the question.
Thanks for the great work! The first thing I do with any new system now is compile and install XFce. It is just the best out there!
