Description Kayvan Sylvan 2000-01-25 16:38:00 EST
The automake-1.4-5 RPM in Redhat-6.1 has a typo that makes it unusable.

The fix is this:
--- automake~   Tue Jan 25 13:27:06 2000
+++ automake    Tue Jan 25 13:26:52 2000

                      . "\t    || ln \$\$d/\$\$file \$(distdir)/\$\$file 2>

Thanks for the heads-up.  This will be fixed in automake-1.4-6 (or later) in Raw
