This is my first attempt to build from cvs.
I have all required applications installed,
and their versions are the ones required.

Now, after

   $ export CVS_RSH="ssh"
   $ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.savannah.gnu.org:/sources/gnuradio
co -P gr-build
   $ cd gr-build
   $ ./checkout -x mc4020

I get all the required directories under gr-build.
Unfortunately, when I try to build (as root) with

   $ ./for-all-dirs ../buildit 2>&1 | tee make.log

I get an error (see make.log attached).
It seems that I need to set LIBTOOL to something...

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks
Achilleas

First survivial tip: DON'T BUILD AS ROOT  (there's no need and it's
dangerous)

Please execute these commands running as your normal user login
and send me the output:

  $ autoconf --version
  $ automake --version
  $ libtool --version

Then try building as a regular user.

Thanks,
Eric

Eric,

I switched to a regular user as you suggested.
Here is the info you requested.:

---------------------------------------------------
[anastas@ernesto gr-build]$ autoconf --version
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.59

Now after executing

./for-all-dirs ../buildit 2>&1 | tee make.log

I get the same error with the attached make.log file.

Thanks
Achilleas

Thanks.  I feel better now.  I hope you do too ;)

OK, those all look good.  Thanks.

I did notice this oddity in your previous make.log:

  configure.ac:115: the top level
  configure.ac:26: version mismatch.  This is Automake 1.9.5,
  configure.ac:26: but the definition used by this AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE
  configure.ac:26: comes from Automake 1.8.5.  You should recreate
  configure.ac:26: aclocal.m4 with aclocal and run automake again.
  src/lib/Makefile.am:32: Libtool library used but `LIBTOOL' is
undefined
  src/lib/Makefile.am:32:

The comments about automake 1.9.5 vs 1.8.5 is odd.
Do (or did you) have both versions installed on your system?
Did they come from rpms's or were they built from source, or what?
Were they installed with the same prefix?
Seems like there must be bits and pieces from both on your system.

BTW, what version/distribution are you using?

Is the clock on your build machine set to a reasonable approximation
of the "right time"?  I.e., not off by hours or years.

It seems that I have automake 1.9.5
but I am using aclocal 1.8.5 (go figure...)

I updated aclocal and now everything works like a charm......

Thanks for your time and advise.

You're welcome.
Glad it's sorted out
