I found I needed to add:


....at the suggested point (calling autogen.sh alone would not work).

Also I had to add (at the %files section):


...because otherwise I got the error:

    RPM build errors:
    Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:

And, finally, build was finished successfully.

I haven't installed/tested it yet, but at least RPMs were created fine.

I'll post the final package soon in case someone would like to use it.

However, on CentOS 5, it didn't work. autoreconf did not output errors 
after I installed gettext-devel but it again threw:

Any other suggestions?

Thanks again for your valuable guidance.
