I'm having problems building the current svn trunk to a different
prefix.  Below is the last of a MAKE.  I'll also attach the commands

systems are FC5 up to date.  1st is i386 latter is x86_64.

Any suggestions?

make[4]: Nothing to be done for `all-am'.
make[4]: Leaving directory
make[3]: Leaving directory

 1005  sudo rm -rf /opt/gnucash-svn
 1006  cd $HOME/GnuCash/GnuCash-svn
 1007  ./  --enable-ofx --prefix=/opt/gnucash-svn
 1008  ./configure --enable-compile-warnings  --enable-ofx --enable-hbci
--enable-debug  --prefix=/opt/gnucash-svn
 1009  make


On a different system I removed all the files from the "GnuCash-svn"
directory and preformed a "checkout" again from the trunk.  When I
attempt a build, with the enclosed scipt, I receive the following

[dvherman at FedoaCore5Eval GNUCash]$ ./Build_Gnucash-svn

You will also need config.guess and config.sub, which you can get from

I use this script for the build.

sudo rm -rf /opt/gnucash-svn
cd /home/dvherman/GNUCash/gnucash-svn
sleep 10
make clean
./  --prefix=/opt/gnucash-svn --enable-ofx
sleep 10
./configure --enable-compile-warnings --prefix=/opt/gnucash-svn
--enable-ofx --enable-debug
#./configure --enable-error-on-warning --enable-compile-warnings
--prefix=/opt/gnucash-svn --enable-ofx --enable-debug
sleep 10
sudo make install
