When run configure, make, make dist on Cygwin or Ubuntu 11.10, then this
error doesn't occur, indicating to me probably a failure of Lubuntu 12.10.
Note, I did *not* run autoreconf when rerunning on Cygwin.

We need more information to try to understand the issue.  Please post the
contents of your,, and other files you think might
be useful.

Please find the code tarball attached.

I still cannot reproduce your error ...  Please try to find a minimal reproducer
for your issue, that might shed some more light on the issue.

Please look at the link:!753&authkey=!APO2Gn5qoNt5y_M

Now it fails in another directory. I thought it might have something to do with newlines with AC_CONFIG_FILES, but it doesn't.

The style of the failure is the same. It create the "libwin" directory, but fails now to create the "libtestfw" directory when I use "make dist". Building works as expected.

OS is Lubuntu12.10

address@hidden:~/autotools$ make dist
if test -d "winproglib-1.0.0"; then find "winproglib-1.0.0" -type d ! -perm -200 -exec chmod u+w {} ';' && 
rm -rf "winproglib-1.0.0" || { sleep 5 && rm -rf "winproglib-1.0.0"; }; else :; fi
test -d "winproglib-1.0.0" || mkdir "winproglib-1.0.0"
 (cd libtestfw && make  top_distdir=../winproglib-1.0.0 
distdir=../winproglib-1.0.0/libtestfw \
     am__remove_distdir=: am__skip_length_check=: am__skip_mode_fix=: distdir)
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/jcurl/autotools/libtestfw'
cp: cannot create regular file `../winproglib-1.0.0/libtestfw/': No 
such file or directory
make[1]: *** [distdir] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jcurl/autotools/libtestfw'
make: *** [distdir] Error 1

I tested on Cygwin-1.7 and it builds and "make dist" also works.

Thanks for your help,
