           Summary: Missing instructions for building from CVS
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 4.3p2
          Platform: Other
               URL: http://openssh.org/portable.html
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: bitbucket at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: pepper at rockefeller.edu

The page on Portable OpenSSH provides instructions for fetching the
source from CVS via SSH, and links to the INSTALL file.


Unfortunately, the INSTALL file's instructions (to start with
./configure) are insufficient. My HEAD checkout includes configure.ac
but not configure. I guess this is for autoconf/automake, but this
should be documented. Today "autoconf" created a usable configure, but
last week it was failing. Is "autoconf" always intended to work, and be
the only step between CVS checkouts and the INSTALL procedure?
