I'll look into that. Useful. Also a reminder why usually my pants drop down within the hour : I want autoconf, not automake : My makefiles are good. Very good if I say so myself. install-sh (or install.sh) is installed my automake, but I don't want automake. autoconf requires install.sh it however. WTF ? I ended up making a copy... Igmar
