Serghei, Tim, all, Trying to debug the iccconfig.cpp error I'm having with kdebase, I've run across the following line in the ../iccconfig/Makefile.am: noinst_HEADERS = iccconfig.h According to http://www.gnu.org/software/hello/manual/automake/Headers.html <quote> Usually, only header files that accompany installed libraries need to be installed. Headers used by programs or convenience libraries are not installed. The noinst_HEADERS variable can be used for such headers. However when the header actually belongs to a single convenience library or program, we recommend listing it in the program's or library's _SOURCES variable (see Program Sources) instead of in noinst_HEADERS. This is clearer for the Makefile.am reader. noinst_HEADERS would be the right variable to use in a directory containing only headers and no associated library or program. </quote> What struck me is the line reading: "noinst_HEADERS would be the right variable to use in a directory containing only headers and no associated library or program." This isn't the case with iccconfig because you have the program iccconfig.cpp. Also, is it possible that I've run into a gcc compiler error? I'm working with the following: gcc 4.5.2-6 gcc-fortran 4.5.2-6 gcc-libs 4.5.2-6 gcc-objc 4.5.2-6 Thanks for any thoughts you may have. -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
