How to build the squid/3p2-ecap branch?

Asked by Stu


Forgive me if this is a simple question.

I have installed libecap-0.2 then run this command 'bzr branch lp:~rousskov/squid/3p2-ecap' and followed the INSTALL file.
However there is no configure script.

So I tried the commands autoconf and automake, which generated the configure script after printing loads of errors. The trying to run the configure it prints 'cannot find install-sh,, or shtools in cfgaux "."/cfgaux.

Any ideas how I build this branch of squid, I'm need to use libecap0.2.

Thank you

To bootstrap Squid bzr sources, run ./ If you see errors, your environment is not ready for bootstrapping and you probably need to install more autotools or different versions of autotools, which may be difficult.

To avoid bootsrapping, try Squid3 trunk/HEAD daily snapshots. They are bootsrapped and support libecap v0.2.0:
