It looks like you are missing aclocal script, which is, I believe, a part of automake package. Use setup to install the package.

Or, the package is already installed, but your path is not correct. Make sure you have all packages required by cscope installed. Use cygcheck to verify your cygwin.

Subject: RE: can not compile cscope on cygwin

Sorry about the personal email thing.. my 
webmail service islousy.

This time I connected to the cvs repository
and checkedoutthe cscope project, as per the instructions (which wasquite
simple). But make still gave the following error
and terminatedimmediately :-
cd . && aclocal-1.7
/bin/bash: line 1: aclocal-1.7:command not found
make: *** [aclocal.m4] Error 127

For which I did agrep on "aclocal" :-

aclocal.m4:# generated automatically by aclocal1.7.9 -*- Autoconf -*-
aclocal.m4:# Automake X.Y traces this macroto ensure aclocal.m4 has been
aclocal.m4:# written in clear, in whichcase automake, when readingaclocal.m4,
contrib/ =$(top_srcdir)/aclocal.m4
contrib/Makefile:ACLOCAL =aclocal-1.7
contrib/Makefile:ACLOCAL_M4 =$(top_srcdir)/aclocal.m4
doc/Makefile:ACLOCAL =aclocal-1.7
doc/Makefile:ACLOCAL_M4 =$(top_srcdir)/aclocal.m4
doc/ =$(top_srcdir)/aclocal.m4
missing:  aclocal      touch file\`aclocal.m4'

src/Makefile:ACLOCAL = aclocal-1.7
src/Makefile:ACLOCAL_M4= $(top_srcdir)/aclocal.m4
src/ =$(top_srcdir)/aclocal.m4

I tried replacing all instances ofaclocal-1.7
with aclocal.m4, but it gave the same error.
Ran out ideashere. Waiting for yours (thanks !!)

An unrelated question :- doescygwin support the
"script" utility ?

It looks like that your cvstarball wasn't "pluged-in". As I see it, you have two options:

1. Usesetup to install cvs on your system, then put the cvs tarball in yourcvs repository, and then check out the files. Alternativelly, you couldfollow instuctions on to getsource files and skip cvs tarball completely. Anyway, you'll probablyneed to consult cvs man pages in order to get through this.

2. Youcan try to  manually rename files and strip them of change history.Needless to say, it may take while to do this and it may be error proneprocess -- the experiance you've alreadyhad.

Thanks for the reply. Idid rerun configure
after installingflex, bison and everythingelse.

I tried Sunday night's tarball oncvs. I'm not 
sure I followedthe correct procedure for building - ifsuch a procedure is well knownand
different from the standarddistribution, can
you please point meto it.

The files in thetarball are suffixed with ",v"
and themakefile and the configure file,have
an attached change log that causea lot of
error messages(possibly noise). But even
the tarball did notbuild - makeinstantly
gave an error (sorry, I missed copying thisone
for the list- but it was something very basic,
like as if themakefile was notwritten properly).
I even tried removing the change logstuff(which
strangely enough did not seem commented),and
rerunning(starting with configure), but to 


Iremember having similarproblems with 15.5, but cvs version was ok.Now, Ihaven't tried to build cscope recently, but the last time Itried, thecvs version was building (and working) just fine. 

Did youtrycvs?
