./configure missing in libmpcdec 1.2.4
The last version of limpcdec forgot ./configure file.
Edit : ./configure is missing in 1.2.3 too, but is present in 1.2.2
There is ./, but this is not "pretty" for automatic installations without installing autotools.

And if I do ./, I have this error :
Putting files in AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR, `config'.
include/ invalid variable `nobase_include_HEADERS'

Configure has been removed on purpose since it can be regenerated automatically with

However, *should* work. Maybe we need to fix something. Can I ask you your autotools version, and can you check which tool produce this error by calling autotools manually ?

I note for ./configure, even if I don't agree : autotools are not often installed, so some people won't easily do "./configure;make" as they does for other softwares. For example, I had to install it for you only ;-)

automake version : 1.4-p6-11
Note: when checking for automake version, I noticed that automake 1.9 was available too with my distrib (Ubuntu 6.10, by default apt-get install automake installs v1.4).
With automake 1.9, script is OK.

Ok, you have a point and I'll add back configure script into the distributed package so people won't have to guess which autotools package to install. However, svn won't have it as it is unnecessary there.
1.2.4 will be updated soon.

Zenitram 09 December 2006 04:24 pm

Good news, thanks!
(and I agree with you : SVN needn't it, this is a "release specific" file)

Updated on the server. Redownload.

i think it is unnecessary.

any developer will have a current autotools version installed.

but, whatever...
