First, thanks to you for your free software. I use ./configure and make

Why 2.62 and not 2.69?
I have tried many of them 2.69 and 2.68 and 2.62 and this is the same
probleme, so I have stooped to 2.62. I have just compiled again 2.69 and I saw 2.59 again
when I type autoconf -V

task. But many gnu software using this version of autoconf say that is Autoconf 2.59 i am using ! By exemple automake now refuses to compile

And when I type autoconf -V on my terminal, I see

autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.59

Based on what you said above, you successfully installed into
/usr/local/bin, but your shell is probably still set to either have
/usr/bin first in $PATH,

Thanks for your free software and your quick answer. Excuse-me, but I can't exprime in English all subtilities like I use in French. My bash shell have a $PATH with /usr/bin before /usr/local/bin and I have compiled many software, the list is inside compiled-software.txt so I do not think it is the reason
for this.

and always if the name of software is by example software0, when I type software0 --version, i can read
the same version I have.

or else your shell has hashed the previous
location of automake

I never had automake before because no automake software was in this computer
and at this time no automake yet.

from when it did a path search before you did your
install, and needs to be taught to do a full path search instead of
relying on its hashed location. The easiest way to clear the shell
hash, assuming you use a POSIX-y shell like bash, is to execute the



There's no need to send an rtf duplicate copy of your email. Plain text
alone is preferred on technical lists.

Excuse-me, I just wanted to send the log tests/testsuite.log, but my wife speaks to me also and I make a mistake.
Plain text, OK, thanks for this precision

Best regards
