Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1633) ./bootstrap error -> "Have you installed GNU Autoconf Archive?"
Date Wed, 27 Feb 2013 10:45:28 GMT


Gennady commented on COUCHDB-1633:

Yes, sure: 

Unable to find the `ax_check_icu.m4' file.

Have you installed GNU Autoconf Archive?

brew install autoconf-archive
Warning: It appears you have MacPorts or Fink installed.
Software installed with other package managers causes known problems for
Homebrew. If a formula fails to build, uninstall MacPorts/Fink and try again.

> Something new with the build of couchdb I didn't have before. Now when launching bootstrap
for the first time I get the following error:

> I solved it on ubuntu by installing autcoconf-archive. But I have no idea how to do the
same thing on macosx yet. Also it should be documented so far.
