Hi All,

I have a basic question regarding how to compile libaxl/llibvortex on
various *NIX platforms (linux-x64, Solaris-x64, hpux-ia64, aix-ppc64). I am
able to compile libaxl on Linux64 by running following commands:

% ./autogen.sh
% ./configure --prefix=<absolute location of libaxl directory>
% make

However when I proceed to compile the same on any other platform in the list
above, I get the following error on the first command:
% ./autogen.sh

*You must have automake installed to compile LibAXL:  Another XML library

Looking at the autogen.sh script, it invokes multiple other tools like
automake, autoconf, libtoolize, aclocal, autoheader etc. So my questions

1) Is it mandatory to have the above tools (as a pre-requisite) to compile
axl/vortex on any UNIX platform?

2) Can't we copy the generated configure script (and other such files) from
1 platform and use it on any other? Does it have any OS/host specific info?

3) If required, which packages to get and from where? What is the minimum
version required for these? Can they be installed in a non-root login?
