Hi,

I have received a bug-report saying that 'make distclean' fails for GNU APL.

The error message is this:

make[2]: Entering directory `/home/eedjsa/projects/juergen/apl-1.5/src'

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From what I can see:

(1) the libapl related files should not be deleted in the first place .
The Makefile.am (attached) uses:

if WANT_LIBAPL

which is an AM_CONDITIONAL() and the project was NOT ./configure'd to build libapl

(2) why would 'make distclean' try (and then fail) to build any targets in the first place?

Shouldn't it just delete files created by ./configure and be happy if they are gone?

------------------------------------------------------
automake version is 1.14.1
autoconf version is 2.69

The whole project is at http://svn.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/trunk/?root=apl

Sometimes make distclean works, but I haven't figured when.

Thanks,
J├╝rgen Sauermann
