Tried to compile gtm_V53001_linux_i686_src.tar.gz which I downloaded from
but failed. :-(
make -f sr_unix/comlist.mk -I./sr_unix -I./sr_linux gtm_ver=`pwd`
(well - at least this is my interpretation of the very short description)
Build process throws lots of warnings like
cc1: note: obsolete option -I- used, please use -iquote instead
and finally fails with
make: *** No rule to make target `libmumps.a(cmerrors_ctl.o)', needed by `libmumps.a'.
which is not astonishing that the result of the previous process was
just a bunch of text files in `pwd`/pro/obj with names *.d .
It might be that a binary version of GT.M is needed to build the source
which just sucks.
