Just for a reference...

Case 1.
I configured:
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/libpng/lib/pkgconfig/:/usr/local/zlib/lib/pkgconfig/"
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/magick --with-png

and configure fails:
config.status: error: in `/Users/eiichi/Desktop/ImageMagick-7.0.8-45':
config.status: error: Something went wrong bootstrapping makefile fragments
for automatic dependency tracking. Try re-running configure with the
'--disable-dependency-tracking' option to at least be able to build
the package (albeit without support for automatic dependency tracking).
See `config.log' for more details

Case 2.
I configured adding --disable-dependency-tracking:
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/libpng/lib/pkgconfig/:/usr/local/zlib/lib/pkgconfig/"
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/magick --with-png --disable-dependency-tracking

This time configure succeeds but make fails:
/Applications/ all-am
make[1]: config/install-sh: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [utilities/.dirstamp] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

I split this post from mine. This one is about a configure error. Mine is about a make error.

Please identify your platform/OS

We recently updated to the latest autoconf/automake configuration files and something broke. The culprit is likely in automake. Until there is patch try this command to build ImageMagick:

Code: Select all

./configure MKDIR_P="/bin/mkdir -p" --disable-dependency-tracking

Just a quick note:

I tried to build the latest ImageMagick-master (470655aa95fb3178ecca6b545f5e6a1654f0da85) with "MKDIR_P="/bin/mkdir -p" --disable-dependency-tracking".
The isuue seems to be fixed tentatively.

Thanks a lot.
