UX:rm: ERROR: Incorrect usage
UX:rm: TO FIX: Usage: rm [-fiRr] file ...
Your 'rm' program seems unable to run without file operands specified
on the command line, even when the '-f' option is present. This is contrary
to the behaviour of most rm programs out there, and not conforming with
the upcoming POSIX standard: <http://austingroupbugs.net/view.php?id=542>
Please tell [hidden email] about your system, including the value
of your $PATH and any error possibly output before this message. This
can help us improve future automake versions.
Aborting the configuration process, to ensure you take notice of the issue.
