having a problem compiling code under Ubuntu 12.04

Asked by roger sibert

Using Jenkins build sever for the output but see much of the same thing when running everything by hand from the command prompt.

What I was trying to figure is what version of build software procenv is designed for/built against. Im not great at chasing this sort of thing but its looking like either a version problem at that point a build environment on my end.


+ ./reconf
aclocal: aclocal: file `m4/lt~obsolete.m4' does not exist
configure.ac:18: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_PROG_CC_C_O
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
configure.ac:44: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_CONDITIONAL
configure.ac:51: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE

configure.ac: no proper invocation of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE was found.
configure.ac: You should verify that configure.ac invokes AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE,
configure.ac: that aclocal.m4 is present in the top-level directory,
configure.ac: and that aclocal.m4 was recently regenerated (using aclocal).
configure.ac:17: installing `config/install-sh'
src/Makefile.am:6: HAVE_SELINUX does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL
src/Makefile.am:9: HAVE_APPARMOR does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL
src/Makefile.am:2: compiling `procenv.c' with per-target flags requires `AM_PROG_CC_C_O' in `configure.ac'
src/Makefile.am: installing `config/depcomp'
/usr/share/automake-1.11/am/depend2.am: am__fastdepCC does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL
/usr/share/automake-1.11/am/depend2.am: The usual way to define `am__fastdepCC' is to add `AC_PROG_CC'
/usr/share/automake-1.11/am/depend2.am: to `configure.ac' and run `aclocal' and `autoconf' again.
/usr/share/automake-1.11/am/depend2.am: AMDEP does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL
/usr/share/automake-1.11/am/depend2.am: The usual way to define `AMDEP' is to add one of the compiler tests
/usr/share/automake-1.11/am/depend2.am: AC_PROG_CC, AC_PROG_CXX, AC_PROG_CXX, AC_PROG_OBJC,
/usr/share/automake-1.11/am/depend2.am: AM_PROG_AS, AM_PROG_GCJ, AM_PROG_UPC
/usr/share/automake-1.11/am/depend2.am: to `configure.ac' and run `aclocal' and `autoconf' again.

'reconf' isn't included in the distribution. The easiest way to build it is to download an official release, for example https://launchpad.net/procenv/trunk/v0.14/+download/procenv-0.14.tar.gz.

Then, do the following:

tar xvfz procenv-0.14.tar.gz
cd procenv-0.14
./configure && make && sudo make install

If you have checked out the bzr branch, I'd just call 'autoreconf -fi' from the top-level directory before following the process above.

The setup was for a Jenkins CI server specifically to use the bzr branch in case there was something beyond release that was needed.

The build options used for Jenkins job look like this

autoreconf -fi

Adding in the autoreconf -fi took care of the build problem
