Hi -

I am trying to install a source build of firebird database. I get the
configure: error: cannot guess build type; you must specify one

i am trying ./configure -with-gpre-cobol

checking build system type... ./config.guess: unable to guess system type

This script, last modified 2001-09-04, has failed to recognize
the operating system you are using. It is advised that you
download the most up to date version of the config scripts from

so I am interested that it is picking up this 2001 script when the
config.guess scripts in /usr/share are newer.

Please provide any help suggestions if you can.

try "autoreconf ifv" this should update the config.guess
but it is possible that you will hit other issues due to the
15 years passed

thx. -jim
