Missing po/Makefile.in.in

Asked by Mumia W. on 2011-06-04

When trying to configure xpad from trunk, I get
this error message:

> checking if msgfmt accepts -c... yes
> checking for gmsgfmt... (cached) /usr/bin/msgfmt
> checking for xgettext... (cached) /usr/bin/xgettext
> configure: creating ./config.status
> config.status: creating Makefile
> config.status: creating src/Makefile
> config.status: creating doc/Makefile
> config.status: creating images/Makefile
> config.status: error: cannot find input file: `po/Makefile.in.in'

How do I get/generate that file so that I can start
compiling?

There's a whole lot of stuff on google on that, e.g.:

I figured it out! You have to run intltoolize before ./configure. So the sequence of commands goes like this:
./autogen.sh
intltoolize
./configure
make
sudo make install

(c)

Maybe you have to install intltoolize? In BSD it's in package:

bash-4.2$ port search intltool
intltool @0.40.6 (textproc, gnome)
    a string tool

Or there's something here:

and so on:

Thank you. That allowed me to compile xpad 4.1.
