Compiling ruby - cannot find install-sh or install.sh


#1

I’ve compiled ruby in the past using MingGW / MSYS on Windows, but for
some reason I’m now getting an error when doing the “./configure”
command, which is “configure: error: cannot find install-sh or
install.sh” using a fresh download of ruby 1.8.4.

I can’t find the file, is it part of the ruby source or the compiler?

Many thanks, Kris.

It is sitting in cvs:

% cvs status install-sh

File: install-sh Status: Up-to-date

Working revision:    1.2
Repository revision: 1.2     /src/ruby/install-sh,v
Sticky Tag:          ruby_1_8 (branch: 1.2.8)
Sticky Date:         (none)
Sticky Options:      (none)

and in the tarball:

503 % tar ztf ruby-1.8.4.tar.gz | grep install
ruby-1.8.4/install-sh
