Hi everyone,

   here is my configuration:

HP Compaq 6820s Notebook PC - Business Notebook (Laptop)
Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T8100 (2.1 GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 3 MB L2 cache)
    Mobile Intel® GM965

and I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid.

   Here's the problem: 

I've configured the build to be installed in a local directory, without
any other options, additional solvers, etc. Configure and make ran fine,
but here are last few lines of make install.

leaving directory `/home/tomislav/Software/mbdyn-1.3.6/var'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/tomislav/Software/mbdyn-1.3.6/var'
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/tomislav/Software/mbdyn-1.3.6'

make[2]: Nothing to be done for `install-exec-am'.
/bin/bash /home/tomislav/Software/mbdyn-1.3.6/build/install-sh -d

make[1]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/tomislav/Software/mbdyn-1.3.6'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

Is this serious? I've made the install just now, and will try to run the
tutorials tomorrow. Please help...

Thank you,
