i want to take a look on fiasko, drops, dope and get via
cvs -d :pserver:guest at checkout oskit oskit10 l4env linux22 l4

the latest source. With the "Building DROPS HOWTO" from may 2003 i

The "make" run described in "1 Quickstart - 3." failed, because the
dependency to automake wasn't mentioned in "3.2 OS requirements".

Now make breaks with:
