I ended up downloading the source via BZR and compiling it and getting it working.

Hi, I'm having the same problem in Debian Etch. I'm pretty certain I have all the dependencies for AWN. Any insight would be appreciated.

Try to install gettext, it worked for me. Then configure and make again.

That didn't work. Could my running 64-bit Etch have anything to do with it?

I can confirm the make continued after I've installed also gettext in ubuntu 7.10
The message "/bin/sh: -o: not found" for awn doesn't show up.
