Eclipse uses absolute pathnames which confuses ./configure in thinking that it is doing out-of-source-dir build.

I *love* readlink -f , but I'm pretty sure it won't be available on non-GNU systems. Can't try it out ATM though..

How else can we do this?

Well, the original version of the patch (not created by me) was

srcdir=cd $(dirname $0);pwd currdir=pwd if != "$currdir"?; then

It is ugly, but probably more portable. If you want to go in the other way, there is a discussion how to make portable readlink -f equivalent on

Damn, trac silly formatting defeated me again. It should be

srcdir=$(cd $(dirname $0);pwd)
if ["$srcdir" != "$currdir"]; then
