Well, I made a build directory, and snagged getversion.py off the
self-hosted subversion repository, moved it by floppy-disk over to the
internal network, and put it in place (making it chmod +x). After "rm -rf
autom4te", I do another "autoconf". This time resulting in no errors!
But when I do "./configure", I get:
./configure: syntax error at line 1702 : `(' unexpected
Inspecting line 1702 of configure doesn't tell me anything much. It reads:
