Build process problem

I was trying to build the popupmenu from the 4.0 source. Failed at the first step:

dr800@dr800-desktop:~/dr800/projects/popupmenu$ autoreconf --install

configure.ac:15: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_INTLTOOL
If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
See the Autoconf documentation.
autoreconf: /usr/bin/autoconf failed with exit status: 1

Where is AC_PROG_INTLTOOL defined?

OK, the SDK document forgot to mention that you need to install "intltool" package.

Now autoreconf and configure are all fine, but make has these error:

dr800@dr800-desktop:~/dr800/projects/popupmenu$ make
make all-recursive

How do you generate those .Po file?

run intltoolize first, so you run:
# intltoolize
# autoreconf --install
# ./configure --host=arm-poky-linux-gnueabi
# make

Thanks. I figured this out. I have never used intltoolize before.

Another question: what make target should I use to make a release build. My compiled popupmenu is way bigger than the original one: 233k vs 68k.

try
# arm-poky-linux-gnueabi-strip popupmenu

Update, I should add that you can have it stripped automatically by make install-strip, for example by:
# ./configure --host-arm-poky-linux-gnueabi --prefix=/usr
# make
# make install-strip DESTDIR=/home/user/popupmenu-install

that's because the binary contains debug information.
Run strip against it.
Btw, not the strip binary in /usr/bin, but the ine in /usr/local/poky/arm.../bin

Some of the firmware components also require a: --sysconfdir=/etc in the configure call (at least for the R1.7.1 firmware).
