Oops. This version is not yet in the testing archive. They still use

With this version I got warnings about unsupported path variables in
Makefile.in of the gettext package. Maybe this is fixed with gettext
0.15. Until this all is part of testing I stick to 2.59a (stable)

I use the same.

You are right. It should even compile without libasound.

This is really strange because NEWS *is* in the repository. Did you
configure your CVS not to get files with zero length?

The error log you attached didn't tell me anything and I don't know
what's wrong here. Did configure run without errors or warnings?
The last release only added some source files so I don't know why the
build process doesn't work anymore. I think it's an issue of autoconf
2.60a. Maybee you should try with 2.59a.
Sorry for this insufficient answer but I prefer to spend my time to
develop pbbuttonsd rather than the GNU autotools. They should
simply work. ;-)
