Hi all

I'm trying to build NetworkManager from SVN on factory. I can't get to complete. I've installed gnome-common, automake, autoconf,
libtool, intltool, pkg-config, gettext-runtime and gettext-tools, and still
get the following error:


checking for autoconf >= 2.53...
testing autoconf2.50... not found.
testing autoconf... found 2.61
checking for automake >= 1.7...
testing automake-1.10... found 1.10.1
checking for libtool >= 1.4.3...
testing libtoolize... found 1.5.26
checking for glib-gettext >= 2.2.0...
testing glib-gettextize... found 2.15.5
checking for intltool >= 0.25...

**Warning**: I am going to run `configure' with no arguments.
If you wish to pass any to it, please specify them on the
`./' command line.

Processing ./
Running libtoolize...
You should add the contents of `/usr/share/aclocal/libtool.m4' to

Copying file mkinstalldirs
Copying file po/

Please add the files
codeset.m4 gettext.m4 glibc21.m4 iconv.m4 isc-posix.m4 lcmessage.m4
from the /usr/share/aclocal directory to your autoconf macro directory
or directly to your aclocal.m4 file.
You will also need config.guess and config.sub, which you can get from

Running intltoolize...
intltoolize: 'po/' is out of date: use '--force' to overwrite

I understand that most of the requests and suggestions in the output above are
normally ignored - I get similar output when building on 10.3 successfully.

I get the same result if is run with the args to configure.
captain_magnus tried the same, with the gnome-devel pattern installed, and
got the same result.

Who knows the gnome buildsystem well enough to say what's missing here?
