<rekado_>but the version difference doesn't make any sense to me.
<rekado_>The exact error is this: "Version mismatch error. This is libtool 2.4.3, but the definition of this LT_INIT comes from libtool 2.4.2. You should recreate aclocal.m4 with macros from libtool 2.4.3 and run autoconf again."
<rekado_>I wonder how this can be as the version of libtool in guix is 2.4.2, not 2.4.3. How could it have created macros from libtool 2.4.3?
<civodul>rekado_: there's a stale aclocal.m4 here that you should remove before running autogen.sh
<civodul>but it's a shame the thing doesn't come with pre-generated configure and all
<rekado_>civodul: I suspected the same and added a line to remove the file, but apparently there is none.
<bavier>rekado_: could it be pulling in some files from the parent ghostscript directory?
<rekado_>bavier: don't know. I removed the parent directory's m4 files already, but it's the same. There is a rudimentary Makefile ("unix.mak") that I might be able to use instead by running "make -f unix.mak", but this is all a bit weird.
