Hi,

I got an error message when I run make install:

/usr/bin/install: cannot stat `index.html': No such file or directory make[2]: *** [install] Error 1

the full description as below:

[root@banana R-patched]# make install

make[1]: Entering directory `/root/dls/R-patched/m4'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `install'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/dls/R-patched/m4'

make[1]: *** [install] Error 1

make: *** [install] Error 1

when I run configure, I got two warnings, is it the cause the problem in make install?
