Re: Compiling mc-4.5.44 [no:command not found]
Thanks for your reply. No you are not wrong, according to another
source of email message posted on :
It also mentions about gettext.
Then I checked my system, there is no gettext installed. So I installed
gettext-0.10.35 and re-configured mc-4.5.44, make yields no error this time
and finally installed mc.
Thanks for your help.
BTW, the old config.log do not mention about msgfmt but an error to xpm.h
which is concerning X windows. I havn't installed that package yet.
