Nope. The only plugins that were not built (according to ./configure for

The CVS version compiles without this error. I've got 'automake-1.7' 
package, which should have everything needed...

Now the problem is that ubuntu probably won't just get latest stable 
into dapper. But that's problem on their side.

Thanks for help.
