For the full build log, see [3].

From some research done in the bug report at [3], it appears to be caused by ac_aux_dir not being properly initialized, causing $am_aux_dir to be set to ${HOME} , and as a consequense $install_sh to be set to ${HOME}/install-sh .

Interestingly, reordering lines in configure.ac such that

AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([foreign dist-bzip2])

comes before


appears to resolve the build failure.

As an alternative, adding




causes the build to complete successfully.

My additional questions:
- AFAWCT, nothing in the documentation seems to suggest that a particular ordering of the macros in configure.ac is required. How can it be that reordering the macros causes different behaviour?

Kind regards,
