Thank you for reply,
I read the link but I have to concede to me this as a littlte confusing 
and difficult to understand. Did you succeed in building up a running 
system inspite of that errors? I haven't had any test failures until yet 
excepted chap. 6.15-gcc where also unexpected failures were predicted by 
the book.

Can anyone tell me some more about aclocal5.test. What could be a 
possible reason that it failed? Is this a serious problem or not? Indeed 
it is only one of 22 tests regarding to aclocal that failed.
I cant find any satisfactory information on google but some about the 
function of aclocal itself.  It seems to me that there is some link to 
m4 (chapter 6.23) because aclocal deals with m4-files. So is aclocal 
dispensable ?

I saved config.log- and Makefiles as well as the most prompts of all the 
last chapters so further information is available if needed.
