I get this build error when doing a ./configure of the krb5-1.1 source in
the ./appl directory (Linux 2.2.12, autoconf 2.13, egcs 1.1.2, glibc 2.1.1).
I just downloaded it yesterday.

It appears the shell script has a syntax error in the case statement
(missing text):
./configure: ./configure: line 1815:
`case $krb5_cv_host inir own names for inst all.'

Here's the full output:

Could you try fetching or unpacking it again?

Line 1815 of that file in the distribution I just downloaded looks
just fine:

# Set up architecture-specific variables.
>> case $krb5_cv_host in

And the "ir own names for install" (no space in that last word) is
found only at line 1518:

>> # OSF1 and SCO ODT 3.0 have their own names for install.
# Don't use installbsd from OSF since it installs stuff as root

I don't know how they could get mixed up like that, though I do find
the similarities in line numbers interesting....

Sounds like a corrupted configure script. Closing due to lack of
