Newlib won't build.

Fri Aug 11 00:14:00 GMT 2000

Hi all,

I did a "make clean", "configure --target=h8300-hms", then
make in newlib, but i get an error. I'm using mandrake-7.0
on a pc.

I've looked thru the various, makefile,, configure, etc, but can't find the origin
of the error:

  configure: error: can not find install-sh or in .. ./.."

However, install-sh *is* in the directory newlib-1.8.2

With these large scripts (with lots of bash script), how do you
track down errors like this? Is there a bash debugger for single-
stepping thru scripts? Is there a single-stepping makefile debugger?

[root@localhost newlib-1.8.2]# make

make[1]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/russell/tmp/newlib-1.8.2/etc'
Configuring in h8300-hms/newlib
