I am trying to compile GNU inteutils on Debian and experiencing some problems. configure is going thru without any issues but when I launch make to compile I receive the following messages:

lib/ GL_GENERATE_STDALIGN_H does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL man/ ENABLE_telnet does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL tests/ ENABLE_hostname does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL ... ...

I haven't done any modifications to any of the files except launching configure with --prefix=/path/

please advise

after small research I found inetutils 1.9 archive contained incomplete config files.

obtaining inetutils 1.9.1 sources compilation worked as a charm

here is a link to the sources
