X11R6 xmkmf broken?

Post by roo » Sun, 21 May 1995 04:00:00

I'm running X11R6 and whenever I do a xmkmf and then do a make on the
Makefile is generates, I get this error:

mv -f Makefile Makefile.bak

Makefile:232: *** missing seperator. Stop.

        Anyone else run into this problem or know what's causing it?

X11R6 xmkmf broken?

Can't say that I'v seen this problem but...
Try checking the Imake.tmpl file and look for a
def line near the beginning that has a missing


1. X11R6 Contrib xmkmf problem


I'm compiling X11R6 for Solaris 2.3 and have run across a problem
with the contrib software compilation.

I compiled the core distribution with very little trouble (used
gcc v2.4.5) and set ProjectRoot as /opt/X11.  The installation seems to
be fine (it runs :-) ).

I ran xmkmf -a in the contrib subdirectory and makedepend failed
on the showfont software as it was not able to find FSlib.h.  FSlib.h is
in: /opt/Xll/include/X11/fonts, but the Makefile created by xmkmf
doesn't have this path (the paths in the Makefile are all relative
to TOP=..).

Where have I gone wrong?  Is there an include file path parameter
that I needed to set for installation?  Does the path above
(/opt/X11/include/X11/fonts) look reasonable?  Is there something
wrong with showfont?

Thanks for any input/advice.  I'm new to Imakefiles and xmkmf, so
your help is much appreciated,
