I'm quite unexperienced in building Linux binaries from sources, and
having solved some basic problems (missing gcc, bison, flex, texmf
tree...) I cannot come beyond this point when trying to compile the
20010806 version of pdfTeX:
When I say "./configure --/datadir=/usr/share", in the src directory,
configure tells me that "ln -s" wouldn't work (though it *does* on that
partition). A Makefile is created, but "make pdftexbin" dies with that
"In file included
/usr/include/bits/errno.h:25: linux/errno.h: No such file or directory
make: *** [tex-file.lo] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/usr/pdftex-linux-20010806/src/texk/kpathsea'
make: *** [../kpathsea/libkpathsea.la] Error 2
make: Leaving directory `/usr/pdftex-linux-20010806/src/texk/web2c'
make: *** [pdftexbin] Error 2"
"/usr/include/bits/errno.h" is present.
Can someone tell me what's wrong? Or are there precompiled linux
binaries for the latest pdftex version on the web?
