Description of problem:
Building CPU 1.3.13 with AUTOCONF=autoconf-2.53 and AUTOMAKE=automake-1.5 fails

/usr/share/automake-1.5/am/depend2.am: AMDEP does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL

/usr/share/automake-1.5/am/lang-compile.am: AMDEP does not appear in

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

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Download and unpack cpu 1.3.13.
2.  export AUTOCONF=autoconf-2.53 AUTOMAKE=automake-1.5
3.  ./configure
4.  make

Actual Results:  Build fails w/above messages.

Expected Results:  Build should complete normally

Additional info:

Invoking "automake --gnu src/Makefile" works.
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2002-04-11 03:07:32 EDT
I think you forgot ACLOCAL=aclocal-1.5 ;-)

Another way to build without setting environment vars is
by either (1) copying/symlinking /usr/share/automake-1.5/missing to
missing before running make, or (2) just having
MISSING=/usr/share/automake-1.5/missing when running

automake-1.5 --gnu works fine for me on a fresh tree.
Comment 2 John Dalbec 2002-04-11 08:57:20 EDT
Thanks, ACLOCAL was it.  I tried setting MISSING as you suggested in (2) but it didn't work.  I'm not running the full beta; I just installed 
autoconf253/automake15 from the beta onto a (mostly) RH 7.1 system.  Do I need to install/upgrade something else?
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2002-04-12 01:53:01 EDT
You need automake15-1.5-2, which is in rawhide now, for that to work.
