Hello Ralf,

using your fossile config.cache files, you ended up with

> | INSTALL=''/usr/bin/install -c''

in your config status.

When searching for a victim to blame, you found:


I tried to understand how this can be the cause of the problem, and I
failed.  So I started hunting for another victim.

Perhaps the problem is that your fossile cache file contains code which
sets ac_cv_path_install to '/usr/bin/install -c', including the quotes.

I got that result when I fooled configure into thinking that bash doesn't
properly quote in the output of `set':

export fool='ac_space= ' && ./configure -C

Then ./config.cache contained:
ac_cv_path_install=${ac_cv_path_install=''\''/usr/bin/install -c'\'''}

So the natural question is: haven't you done something similar?

Have a nice day,
