Re: [dev] debian, again

Even more strange, simply using make, or "noisycc=1 make all", I got:

  make[2]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/local/lib/libixp.a',
needed by `wmii.out'. Stop.

I don't know if I'm missing some developmental package in my freshly
installed distribution.

The strange thing is that, if I run "make deb" first, which gives the
error message I previously reported, and then "make clean" (but the
file "" generated by "make deb" rermains ) followed by
"make", wmii compiles. Then, the "make install" installs everything in
./debian/wmii-hg/, according to

I cannot figure out what is happening.
In attachment the output of "noisycc=1 make all"
