Comment 8 for bug 423895

You are right. Tried with git sources and it did work.

Btw I had to comment out "doc/Makefile.am" otherwise autogen would fail:
 doc/Makefile.am:1: `%'-style pattern rules are a GNU make extension
 automake-1.10: cannot open < doc/ift-extract.texi: No such file or directory

Thank you :)
