Well first of all, which script are you using? AFAIK there were two versions
of scripts, one from me (kinda older, bash+svn based) and one more recently
(from someone else).
My script still works fine for me, basicly svn up && && make &&
make install
Maybe the script you are using has some prefix or other things hardcoded and
the hardcoded stuff is not suitable to your system. For exemple, my script
has --prefix and --sysconfdir hardcoded for all packages.
