I'm afraid so.

But if you could just get the cvs automake anywhere, you could set up
a similar test case which would show the failure.

What I'd really like is a way to see the failure with GNU make and gcc
(ansi5.test does this and then does a couple small hacks to fool the
build into thinking that ansi2knr is required).  If I had this then I
could debug it here.

Failing that, a simple test which fails on your box with your compiler
would help.  I might have access to a similar box, in which case I
could find out what is wrong.

One problem is that right now I don't have a theory of what is going
wrong.  I looked at the Makefiles from ansi5.test and they look fine
to me.  And if I can't reproduce it, unfortunately that means you'll
probably have to figure out how to debug it :-(.

What system are you using?  What make are you using?  What compiler?
Are you building the source tree or in a separate tree?

Sometimes `make' will have a flag that prints debugging information.
So you might take a look through that to see if it is interesting.
Perhaps we've simply run into a bug or limitation in your make which
we must then work around.
