Re: [linrad] LINRAD

The question below, I think, should have been addressed to the whole
Linrad list.

It is hard to know from the very terse description but it appears
that the Makefile generated by the ./configure script is trying
to run "autoconf".  If so this is a bug.  End users should 
_never_ need to have the GNU Auto tools packages installed.

Possably the date stamps were wrong when the Linrad package was
tarred up?  The maintainer needs to do a full build _and then_
use the "dist" target to build the distribution tar.gz file.

The short answer:  "make" was trying to run a command called
"autoconf" and you don't have autoconf installed.  But this
should not have happend, but it did so the work around is to
install the GNU "auto tools".
