OK, should be fixed in git, I commented out the useless (and buggy) lines.

Thanks for your feedback,

OK, I think you could safely remove any reference to lw6dyn_test in lw6bot_test (comment it out). I investigate.

Since there is no "make pkg" option, I ran "make deb" after following your instructions. Things seemed to go well until this:

I have been able to make and make install, in the parent directory.

This was with using git commit 7bca613a4bb36f67d6bd7c45cada53d050ac4388 .

OK, you need to:

a) copy source tarball to ./pkg
b) "cd pkg" and then "make pkg"

The reason I did this was 1) to simplify the main Makefile.am, it's OK to have horrible complexity in pkg/Makefile.am, but I didn't want this to go mainstream. Another reason is that I find it more practical to be able to copy by hand the tarball in ./pkg (when I'm releasing, I want to check the tarball I'm uploading, exactly this one, builds fine).

Anyway, I updated the documentation so that it's written somewhere, and now main Makefile has dummy targets that say "change to pkg and build it here".

It's not in the snapshot but it's on git (will be in tonight's snapshot).

Have a nice day,

I am able to run "make dist" and "make deb" for the extra maps folder of the git repo. However, there is no option to run "make deb" for the game itself.

sudoman@igo build$ make deb
make: *** No rule to make target `deb'. Stop.
