You got this problem while trying to compile a simple C++ file in KDevelop:
cd ‘/home/pascal/temp/atest’ && make -f Makefile.cvs && cd ‘/home/pascal/temp/atest/debug’ && CXXFLAGS=”-O0 -g3″ “/home/pascal/temp/atest/configure” –enable-debug=full && cd ‘/home/pascal/temp/atest/debug’ && make
aclocal: configure.in: 8: macro `AM_PROG_LIBTOOL’ not found in library
make: *** [all] Error 1
*** Exited with status: 2 ***
Don’t look any further. If you are using Kubuntu, install the package libtool using adept and everything will be fine. When will compilers learn to give simple meaningful error messages??? Wasted a lot of precious time looking for that on the Internet – beware, there are many bad answers out there.
Also, using KDevelop and not being able to debug is a pain! The solution: install gdb before you start trying to debug.
