   I need to rebuild the gridengine bits, as for some reason, the 
provided binaries are failing on my machines.  So I pulled the 
10-Jan-2005 CVS sources.  Followed the directions.   And ran into problems.

   I can get up to ./aimk depend, and then I get this:

loading cache ./config.cache
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for working aclocal... found
checking for working autoconf... found
checking for working automake... found
checking for working autoheader... found
checking for working makeinfo... found
checking host system type... Invalid configuration 
`x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu': machine `x86_64-unknown' not recognized

checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... (cached) yes
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc -O3 -Wall -Werror

-I/vol2/tools/SW/openssl-0.9.7e/lx26-amd64/include -Wno-sign-compare 
-D__SGE_NO_USERMAPPING__ ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler 
cannot create executables.
make: Makefile: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `Makefile'.  Stop.
not done

Of course, cd'ing into that directory, running ./configure by hand, 
generates working Makefiles without any complaints.  Also, it looks like 
the include paths are wrong:


as in hardwired to some developers machine.  Where are they hardwired so 
i can fix them?  Also, can I force the aimk to be verbose about what it 
is doing?  I could simply add a '-x' to the script, but that will 
overload the output making problem determination somewhat harder.


ps:  Any plans to migrate over to an autoconf or similar system to make 
builds somewhat easier?
