Okay, first I installed automake 2.59 and autoconf 1.9 before trying again. This time:


[17:12:22 jax@mitra:/usr/local/src/x5250]$ ./autogen.sh
/usr/local/share/aclocal/xdelta.m4:7: warning: underquoted definition of AM_PATH_XDELTA
run info '(automake)Extending aclocal'

These errors are not serious and there's nothing we can do about them anyway. Notice that they are from other packages. Newer autoconf is much stricter about quoting and these error messages are from packages that haven't been updated for newer autoconf. I get many of the same errors and it isn't a problem. (At least it hasn't been yet!)


    configure.ac: installing `./install-sh'
    configure.ac: installing `./missing'
    src/Makefile.am: installing `./depcomp'

These lines show that autoconf worked ok.

And the make still hung on rpl_malloc.

This still bothers me. Can you send me the entire output from make? autoconf defines rpl_malloc when the real malloc function is non-portable. What is bothering me is that it only complains about debug.c and not the other files that use malloc. Thus the complete output from make might be useful.


It may very well be that I need to write a replacement for malloc. Not a big deal since the autoconf manual gives the code that should be used (it is just a wrapper around the real malloc function). But I want to be sure that that is the real problem.
