More Autoconf and Automake issues

I received an email from a fellow about a problem he was having building Bookcase on Suse. It’s another problem with the auto* build system. It seems like the new versions are really breaking stuff. I had to downgrade to automake 1.6 and for Suse, which includes automake 1.7, configure wouldn’t work since it insisted on rebuilding from configure.in which conflicted with something else. Evidently, there’s a simple solution with a one-line edit to configure.in, but in my build tree, that’s generated from configure.in.in, so I need to back the fix up the chain. I guess KDE has had to deal with this. I need to look at the KDE cvs admin directory.

I rebuilt the Mandrake RPM, since it was picking up a dependency on libGLcore.so.1 from my nvidia graphics driver…
