  1. Hi,

    I run ./configure, then make and I get this error:

    make: *** No rule to make target `acbirnet.m4′, needed by `configure’. Stop.

  2. A short line on the topic of “what the heck is Rapicorn” would not have been amiss.

    The front page of the website doesn’t answer that question either.

    Moving along,

  3. Sorry for not having an official website with about page for Rapicorn yet. I have however bloged about it and described it earlier:
