I have developed a C application that uses the avahi-client and avahi-common libraries.

I need to crosscompile these libraries, so I downloaded the source code to do that, but I am not able to find the ./configure file and I dont know how generate it.


I can not find the ./configure file

You are supposed to generate ./configure from configure.ac:

# -*- Autoconf -*-
# Process this file with autoconf to produce a configure script.

Source configure.ac

  • Hi, thank you for your time, i ran the autconf command, and a i got the following error message: configure.ac:26: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE so i had edit the line of the configure.ac where AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE to m4_pattern_allow(AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE) and i runed again autoconf command and the configure file had been generate succefull. – gorn Aug 23 '17 at 14:17
