[webkit-dev] Building WebKit using auto tools

No GNUmakefile because of very ancient versions of automake and libtool (hey, I said it was RHEL3!).  Updating and trying again...

Hi Brent,

Thanks for the quick response! I've got no GNUmakefile.

After running autogen:

$ ls GNUmakefile*
GNUmakefile.am  GNUmakefile.in

Apparently, my problem with the qmake thing was my ancient perl...continuing down that road until the auto tools thing works.

That's funny, it's just the opposite for me.

I'm trying to build on RHEL3 Linux (gcc 4.2.2). After running autogen, I run make and it starts complaining about not finding xcode:

$ make
make[1]: Entering directory `/workplace2/build/WebKit/JavaScriptCore'
( xcodebuild -target All `perl -I../WebKitTools/Scripts -Mwebkitdirs -e 'print XcodeOptionString()'`  | grep -v setenv && exit ${PIPESTATUS[0]} )
/bin/sh: line 1: xcodebuild: command not found
make[1]: *** [all] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/workplace2/build/WebKit/JavaScriptCore'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I have this problem as well; the Apple build environment has several Makefiles that trigger xcodebuild commands that are causing your trouble.

Try building with:

> make -f GNUmakefile

and see if that works any better for you.
