I am successfully building on Fedora 5 with the following:

autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.59
automake (GNU automake) 1.9.6
ltmain.sh (GNU libtool) 1.5.22 (1.2220.2.365 2005/12/18 22:14:06)

I have not seen any warnings or errors to speak of.

What version of automake/autoconf/libtool are being used successfully
building FDO "trunk" on Linux?  I just tried building on my 64bit ubuntu
system and got some pretty funky issues.

The Fdo/Unmanaged/Src/Makefile includes this line:

libFDO.la: $(libFDO_la_OBJECTS) $(libFDO_la_DEPENDENCIES)
	$(LINK) -rpath $(libdir) $(libFDO_la_LDFLAGS)
$(libFDO_la_LIBADD) $(LIBS)

But there is no definition of LINK in the Makefile, nor any apparently
definition so the command run start with the -rpath.

Oddly, even if I manually introduce LINK=ld in the file, I still get
a strange complaint about the rpath even though it looks fine.

I'm *assuming* this is some sort of automake, or perhaps libtool related
issue but I'm not exactly sure.  I will say I hate it when building from
source control always means having to run my own versions of automake,
and autoconf as often there are surprising version dependencies.  But I
accept that this is the common approach.

BTW, i'm running:

warmerda at amd64[85]% autoconf --version
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.59

warmerda at amd64[86]% automake --version
automake (GNU automake) 1.4-p6

warmerda at amd64[87]% libtool --version
ltmain.sh (GNU libtool) 1.5.6 (1.1220.2.95 2004/04/11 05:50:42) Debian:
224 $
