           Summary: "make" fails on SCO 5.0.6a due to autoconf
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.0
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: aaron.pelton at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at

502$ ./configure && make
--(configure output removed)
autoconf -o
Usage: autoconf [-h] [--help] [-m dir] [--macrodir=dir]
       [-l dir] [--localdir=dir] [--version] [template-file]
make: *** [] Error 1

a second machine with more 5.0.6a patches results in
$ make
autoconf -o error: Autoconf version 2.59 or higher is required the top level
autom4te: /usr/gnu/bin/gm4 failed with exit status: 1
make: *** [] Error 1

make install similarly fails as above.

"./configure && make rsync" works fine although a manual install is required.
