it is a good thing to work with the CVS version, since 0.3 is, by now,
The first thing I would check is that you have the right versions of
autoconf, automake, and libtool. If you want to be absolutely safe,
just get the latest versions: download
configure them and install them as usual.
Then you should not call autoconf directly but
in the root directoty of the PPL sources (i.e., the one
containing the configure.ac file). This will create
all the files needed for autoconfiguration. You should
then create a build directory (it is recommended to have
this separate from the source directory) and then
configure as usual.
Do not hesitate to contact us if something is unclear
or goes wrong.
