Hi.  Strange, it seems 'make' decides that it needs to re-build
idn_cmd.c and idn_cmd.h from idn.ggo.  Did you modify either src/idn.ggo
or src/Makefile.am?

No, I haven't modified any of the source files.

Can you show the output from 'ls -l src/' inside
the libidn directory?

Anyway, as a work around, you could do 'touch src/idn_cmd.?' to make
sure the timestamp for the generated files are later than the source.

Aaah ... now I think I see what the problem is. Both src/idn_cmd.h and src/idn_cmd.c ship with the source. I first built a static lib, then ran 'make distclean', then tried to build the dynamic lib. Unfortunately, 'make distclean' removed both src/idn_cmd.h and src/idn_cmd.c. Re-instating those 2 files fixes the problem.

I gather 'make distclean' is doing something it shouldn't ? ... or is 'make distclean' simply the wrong command to be running between builds in this case ?

Cheers,
Rob
