I use a non rpm based distribution.

First thanks for responding. Then unfortunately, as I'm not a 
autoconf/automake expert, I do not understand what you suggest + I use a 
non RPM based linux distribution (OK I have converter but If I want to 
compile a solaris host I will not have rpm...).

So first question that comes in mind and make be inrelevant : do you 
have specific rtems patch for the autoconf or automake software or can I 
install the regular distribution?

Next question is what are the command you have documented supposed to do 
(if I have no rpm command, I must make it differently and understand 
what really needs to be done).

Thanks for your patience,
