I'm sorry if this is a faq, I checked the archive but could not find
any similar questions. I just checked out the sources, but I can't
build it:

cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@dev.w3.org:/sources/public -z3 checkout -r Release-5-2 libwww
cd libwww
perl config/winConfigure.pl                #
aclocal; autoheader; automake; autoconf
./configure                                #
make                                       #


I'm running Linux kernel 2.0.36, perl 5.004_03, autoconf 2.12,
automake 1.4, libtool 1.2, make 3.76.1.

Is tag Release-5-2 a stable release? Am I doing something completely
wrong?

Thanks

Petter



# The INSTALL.html said to ignore the error messages, the message I
got was "no CPU found", just kidding, I got:
