<rekado_>have already done "make clean" and bootstrap and configure and all that.
<taylanub>rekado_: I think po/guix should be in version control and isn't auto-generated, so if it got removed for some reason then none of make clean, bootstrap, and configure would regenerate it.
<rekado_>well, the problem seems to be that it enters po/guix and then wants to enter po/guix from within that directory.
<taylanub>some 'git reset' command should bring back the directory. if you're fine with a 100% clean directory with *everything* outside of version control irrecoverably deleted, you can run "git clean -fdx && git reset --hard". that should leave the git directory in a state as if it were freshly cloned.
<taylanub>it was trying to exec a path that doesn't exist I think. however, I had tested that after a simple 'autoreconf -vif && make && make install' without cleaning so maybe it was a different issue. (after that I did 'git clean -fdx && git reset --hard' and tried to rebuild from scratch, which failed)
