No problem, no offense taken: I just don't know how to be any clearer (-:

The one in the root is indeed missing. It gets created if I remove the
following line in configure.in

> wxchart/Makefile

So perhaps the fact that wxchart is missing the Makefile breaks the
configure process, and therefore the root/Makefile.in does not get created?
Perhaps your root/Makefile.in is left over from an earlier configure/build

Did you do a clean checkout? And root/Makefile.in gets created during

Thanks again, Achim
