Having trouble compiling from SVN

Asked by Slogger on 2008-01-10

I would like to compile inkscape from SVN to see if an error I filed a bug report about is still there.
However, I'm having trouble.

$ ./autogen.sh
and
$ ./configure
seem to work okay.

But:
$ make
make: *** No targets. Stop.

So I figure ./configure isn't working properly.

It ends with:
Configuration:

        Source code location: .
        Destination path prefix: /usr/local
        Compiler: g++
        CPPFLAGS:
        CXXFLAGS: -Wall -Wformat-security -W -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-align -Wsign-compare -Woverloaded-virtual -Wswitch -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -Wno-unused-parameter -g -O2
        CFLAGS: -Wall -Wformat-security -W -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -Wno-pointer-sign -g -O2
        LDFLAGS:

        Use Xft font database: yes
        Use gnome-vfs: yes
        Use openoffice files: yes
        Use MMX optimizations: yes
        Use relocation support: no
        Internal Python: skipped
        Internal Perl: skipped
        Enable LittleCms: yes
        Enable Inkboard: no
        Enable SSL in Inkboard: no
        Enable Poppler-Cairo: yes
        ImageMagick Magick++: yes
        Libwpg: yes

Which doesn't show errors....
What am I doing wrong? Should I be using bzr from launchpad now?

Using Ubuntu 7.10

Solved this, apparently having a folder named 'source&binary' holding the inkscape source folder caused the issue.
Renamed folder to 'source_and_binary' and no longer had a problem.
