Description of problem:
I am unable to compile this. I've installed all the packages it states
that it requires but it has a problem with libtool and never gets past
the configure command.

I have libtool-1.5-8  installed.

This is the stderr output...

+ ./configure --host=i686-pc-linux-gnu --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu
--target=athlon-redhat-linux-gnu --program-prefix= --prefix=/usr

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Wont recompile each time I try unsurprisingly.

Expected Results:  well, either it should work with this version of
libtool, or the spec file should specify what version of libtool is
required. I notice that the LIBTOOL flag is specifically set in the
.spec file.

I've tried commenting out this setting of the flag. That actually
solved the immediate problem and it did start compiling.

Do you have libgtkhtml-devel installed?
Comment 3 Karsten Hopp 2004-11-22 09:52:57 EST
The libtool problem appears to be fixed, a current rebuild doesn't fail at this
point anymore (although it fails later during the creation of the help docs, see
bug 140344)
