Hi, again,

You must have automake to proceed. Sorry.

What version of automake do you have ? All the version I tested
did not break here. It seems yours try to improove its reputation of
being nefarious.

:-}  This is from version 1.6.3.

Somehow, the creation of 'dotest' from 'dotest.in' produced this line:
      command=`echo "/usr/bin/gcc -c -o %s.o -O3 -DGCC_INLINE -Wall
e-pointer -no-cpp-precomp -fno-common -I/usr/local/include %s.c && -o
%s.dylib \
-shared -mimpure-text -O3 -DGCC_INLINE -Wall -fomit-frame-pointer
mp -fno-common %s.o " | sed -e s/%s/$i.gp/g`

A similar line is present in scripts/Makefile.

Obviously something cut long line with '\<newline>' for no reason.
Could you check the pari.cfg file you used for modules_build ?
grep modules_build pari.cfg
should do. If the \ are also here it is a bug in PARI not in gp2c.

I think the "\" things are artifacts from my mailer. The line in scripts/dotest, as well as in scripts/Makefile and pari.cfg, looks like

  ... -I/usr/local/include %s.c && -o %s.dylib ...

i.e., all one line. The problem is the "&& -o". Some macro that came between the "&&" and the "-o" does not have a value.

Anyway you can try to fix it manually by removing the \<newline>
and get something like

command=`echo "/usr/bin/gcc -c -o %s.o -O3 -DGCC_INLINE -Wall -fomit-frame-pointer -no-cpp-precomp -fno-common -I/usr/local/include %s.c && -o %s.dylib -shared -mimpure-text -O3 -DGCC_INLINE -Wall -fomit-frame-pointer -no-cpp-precomp -fno-common %s.o " | sed -e s/%s/$i.gp/g`

I think this line will elicit the same response (-o not found), because following the "&&", there should be a command, right? And what produces this line? Is it one of the "auto" commands?

What is expected there? I used 'gcc', and got complaints about undefined symbols like main, avma, bot, fetch_user_var, gadd, gcmp, ... , pari_err, polx.

What version of autoconf do you use, and what is /bin/sh here?

Autoconf is v. 2.57, and "/bin/sh" is the same as "/bin/bash". I think that 'bash' will behave differently when named 'sh', but I'm not positive.

Thanks for the help.
