Introduction to SGML Common

The SGML Common package contains install-catalog. This is useful for creating and maintaining centralized SGML catalogs.

Non-Multilib or Multilib

Instead of the normal convention of including the autotools files in the package, the maintainers included symlinks to the files in /usr/share/automake. For previous versions of Automake this convention is correct, but recent versions of Automake install the internal files in version specific directories. This causes the configure script to abort. To fix this error, the autotools are regenerated. Since the included file uses a syntax not supported by current versions of Automake, a patch is required to fix the syntax.

patch -Np1 -i ../sgml-common-0.6.3-manpage-1.patch &&
autoreconf -f -i

Compile the package:

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc &&
