I’ve been attempting to build synfig from a clone of the Git repository master on Linux Mint 17 using the synfig build instructions wiki page, and I’ve run into the error message “AC_REQUIRE: `AC_HEADER_STDC’ was expanded before it was required.” while running autoreconf -i -f. I should point out that I had successfully installed the ETL module earlier this week. I returned to the ETL module after having zero luck installing the synfig-core module over the course of several days. My thought was that maybe I would have more luck if I started from the beginning, so I pulled fresh changes from the repository master and tried again. I was wrong.
I tried skipping over to build the synfig-core again to see if I could start from the later road block, but I got new errors messages that were different from my previous attempt. To make a long story short: I don’t know what I’m doing.
I appreciate any and all help.
Here’s the terminal output:
