Autoreconf flags not recognized...

I have decided to repurpose my old G4 as a Mangos server. He's an old PPC based machine running 10.5.8. I have decided to use ScriptDev2. After a few bumps due to silly mistakes, I've hit a snag. So let the fun begin!

I'm following the guide here:


Under the section "Compile for the First Time", step 2, I get to execute the following:

autoreconf -if /configure --prefix=/usr/local --datadir=/usr/local/share --sysconfdir=/usr/local/etc LIBS="-framework Carbon"

When I do this, I get the following error from autoreconf

autoconf: invalid option --prefix=/usr/local
Try `autoconf --help' for more information.

Tried looking for manpages on the application and didn't find anything about using the flag "--prefix" from the gnu.org webpage. After searching the forums here, I did not find much about this.

I would appreciate it if nobody thread-jacked this. Once I figure out this bit, then I'll close the thread - simple as that.

Spiffy. I'll have to work on that bit when I get the chance.

I appreciate the support and the link to the other guide. Let's see if we can't get a server going...

I found no way of closing this thread. If a mod can do so that would be awesome as my question is answered.
