apt-get -t unstable -u install autotools-dev

Thanks very much! :-)

Yep, that's definitely for the 2nd upload -- I haven't even started with
the Goat Book yet (apt-get install autobook/unstable). Probably, this
should be forwarded upstream...

Nice hack ;) I also patched that Makefile 'coz those .gmo's that were
built at last debuild were left over and caused dpkg-source to freak

-	rm -f core core.* *.pox $(PACKAGE).po *.new.po
+	rm -f core core.* *.pox $(PACKAGE).po *.new.po *.gmo

I've sent this patch to upstream, says he'll look into it... Currently
he's working on getting gtklp on GTK2, so I think it's worth telling him
about updating his autotools and libtool too (and those `toos' are too
much ;P

Thanks again for sponsoring this package. And for now, I'm gonna work on
that libtool and po stuff... after I finish teaching my students some

Zakame ;)
