Howdy Marco!

Usually, "no rule to make target" means that something is missing from the =

makefile, or that the makefile itself is missing.

This usually means that the Makefile is missing for that subdirectory.

I ran into something like this once where I did 'svn up' and then tried to =
do =

a rebuild. Somehow in the update I ended up with a blank Makefile.in or =

Makefile.am... which fooled the automake process.

I worked around it by running the 'svn-clean' script, and then starting ove=
r =

with the build. The 'svn-clean' script clears out *everything* that's not =
in =

the subversion repository.

HTH!
