    Hi Paul
    
    thanks foor your suggestions.
    I did as you proposed. However, I had to emerge an older version of
    automake (1.8.5) because autogen.sh complained when i used my
    current automake version (1.10). Then, autogen.sh reported:
    
      configure.ac: installing `./config/install-sh'
      configure.ac: installing `./config/missing'
      configure.ac:196: installing `./config/config.guess'
      configure.ac:196: installing `./config/config.sub'
    
    but since these didn't seem like error messages i went on to do my
    configure call
      ./configure --prefix=/opt/blcr-0.8.2
    --with-system-map=/boot/System.map-genkernel-x86-2.6.30-gentoo-r6
    --with-linux=/tmp/linux-2.6.30
    
    This time it got even further, but then reported various errors (see
    attachment).
    
    I know i haven't tampered around with any of the files in the
    blcr-0.8.2 directory i downloaded,
    so i don't know if that error was there previously or if it was caused
    by my automake...
