I would like to know how to install autoconf, automake, and gettext on my cygwin installation. Can anyone please help me?
I would like to know how to install autoconf, automake, and gettext
Run the Cygwin installer and select the following packages:
autoconf2.5: Current version of the automatic configure script builder (installed binaries and support files)
automake: Wrapper scripts for automake and aclocal (installed binaries and support files)
gettext: GNU Internationalization library and core utilities (installed binaries and support files)
How do I run the installer again?
Just run the setup program you ran when you first installed Cygwin:
See Installing and Updating Cygwin Packages for more information.
I know this is an old thread but I feel the need to spread the word.
I agree with David that those need to be installed but if you need to install any package in cygwin I HIGHLY recommend using a command line package manager called "apt-cyg"! It makes installing things like this SO much easier. It allows me to get shtuff done.
You can go to the main site but I think this Stack Overflow issue is more enlightening.
