[ic] 4.5.6 install problem
Sat, 30 Sep 2000 21:48:18 -0400 (EDT)
Glenn here, and I have to agree with John. The error is saying the file
doesn't exist and (not that error msgs are always gospel...) you can't
delete something that isn't there in the first place. Also, I haven't
done a "make dist" or "make tardist" (at least not consciously) .. unless
"./configure" does those and doesn't say so.
I've tried doing "./configure" and also doing independent
...with both the standard /usr/local/interchange and my own /interchange
with the same results.
Hoping for the best,
