Hi All

I know this is not a LPRng list but I'm trying to build the latest SRPM from

http://lprng.sourceforge.net/DISTRIB/LPRng/LPRng-3.8.27-1.src.rpm

so that I may use it on my CentOS 5 box, but it fails with the following 
errors

+ make MAKEPACKAGE=YES
if [ "UTILS" = po ] ; then \
            for i in po/Makefile* ; do \
                if [ -f "$i" ] ; then \
                    if grep '^mkinstalldirs.*=.*case' $i ; then \
                        echo "fixing broken $i which causes wrong path 
to mkinstalldirs to be used"; \
                        perl -spi -e 
's:^mkinstalldirs\s*=\s*.*:mkinstalldirs = \$(SHELL) \$(MKINSTALLDIRS):' 
$i; \
                    fi \
                fi \
            done \
        fi

It looked like it went through the ./configure portion OK. Any ideas?  
Has someone else gotta LPRng to work on CentOS 5?
