AW: [geos-devel] automake error??

I ask this question due to I'm not able to compile GEOS. You say automake is
OK. I think that configure runs OK but the compilation process breaks with a
lot of error messages I sent to the list some days ago. It was my last hope
that these messages were the cause of the compilation error. 

I believe that automake creates a wrong link path to the compiled objects.
The error message says p.e.:

gcc: ../algorithm/CentroidArea.lo: No such file or directory

and occurs for all *.lo objects. All these objects were stored in the
directory ../geom but not in the expected directories like 

where the source is located.

Perhaps you can help to find a solution.

My system:

redhat 7.2

automake is copying < or making symlinks > some files
to the GEOS directory

These files may be different depending on the automake
version you are using

This is normal behaviour

% info automake
