Well, by deduction and some searching I was able to figure out I needed
However, it appears gettext needs automake 1.8 and all I can get my hands
on is 1.8b and 1.9. When I try to run make, I get:
cd . && /bin/ksh /usr/local/src/gettext-0.14.1/config/missing --run
/usr/local/src/gettext-0.14.1/config/missing: automake-1.8: not found
WARNING: `automake-1.8' is needed, and you do not seem to have it handy on your
system. You might have modified some files without having the
proper tools for further handling them. Check the `README' file,
it often tells you about the needed prerequirements for installing
this package. You may also peek at any GNU archive site, in case
some other package would contain this missing `automake-1.8' program.
make: *** [Makefile.in] Error 1
% automake --version
automake (GNU automake) 1.8b
I've tried 1.9 and it still gives me this error. Is there someway to get
this or can you direct me to where I might find automake 1.8 nowadays?
