You don't normally redirect the output for autoconf - it writes
"configure" by itself.

Hi Adam,

autoconf is only part of the rigging, you also need automake and
aclocal, and in proper order. More below.

Interlude: The easy way for you is to grab ready-made tarballs -
unfortunately, some guys at uni-dortmund.de decided it's time to pull
the plug on the old domain name and rename to tu-dortmund.de, and the
current admin apparently has not invoked the exception clause;
unfortunately I figured that home.pages.de, the forwarder, also pulled
the plug on its configuration interface - I can't seem to find a way to
change the destination, so I need to consider that defunct, too.

Back to the original topic, tarballs are available from


for now.  Or else if someone wants to build from a Git clone, run

	autoreconf --install --symlink --verbose

which sorts out the proper calling order of automake, autoconf, aclocal
(which I think was the missing part) and thereabouts, and calls them for
you, such that you get a working ./configure script.
