[LLVMdev] Setting up new project

I am attempting to set up a new frontend project based on the sample
project (I'm following the instructions at
http://llvm.org/docs/Projects.html). In doing so, I hit a problem with
AutoRegen.sh which I worked around, and hit a problem with configure
that I don't know how to work around.

Below is what happens when I attempt to autoconf and configure the
sample project that ships with LLVM. This is on Mac OS X 10.5 with
autoconf 2.6.0. For reference, /opt/src-llvm is where my llvm sources
are, and where I built those sources. My project is in

$ cd /opt/src-llvm/projects/sample

$ cd autoconf/
$ ./AutoRegen.sh
Your autoconf was not detected as being 2.5x

I have autoconf 2.6. To keep going I edited AutoRegen.sh and made the
following change:

< autoconf --version | egrep '2\.5[0-9]' > /dev/null
> autoconf --version | egrep '2\.[56][0-9]' > /dev/null

$ ./AutoRegen.sh
Regenerating aclocal.m4 with aclocal
Regenerating configure with autoconf 2.5x

$ cd ..

When I compiled the llvm sources, I did not do make install. So the
object files are still where they were built.

$ ./configure --with-llvmsrc=/opt/src-llvm --with-llvmobj=/opt/src-llvm/Release
configure: error: cannot find install-sh or install.sh in
../../../autoconf "."/../../../autoconf

OK. So maybe it wants the main llvm source directory...

$ ./configure --with-llvmsrc=/opt/src-llvm --with-llvmobj=/opt/src-llvm
configure: error: cannot find install-sh or install.sh in
../../../autoconf "."/../../../autoconf

It looks like configure is not correctly accepting the flags I'm giving it.

Any thoughts on where to go from here?
