hi list,
i'm trying to compile lvm .98 on a busybox-1.20.2-based system, and get 
these errors:

autoconf/install-sh -c -d locking/; \
set -e; \
FILE=`echo locking/external_locking.d | sed 's/\\//\\\\\\//g;s/\\.d//g'`; \
DEPS=`echo ../make.tmpl ../VERSION ../Makefile 
../include/.symlinks_created | sed -e 's/\\//\\\\\\//g'`; \
gcc -MM -I. -I../include -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -DDM_IOCTLS -o 
locking/external_locking.d locking/external_locking.c; \
sed -i "s/\(.*\)\.o[ :]*/$FILE.o $FILE.d $FILE.pot: $DEPS /g" 
locking/external_locking.d; \
[ -s locking/external_locking.d ] || rm -f locking/external_locking.d
/bin/sh: autoconf/install-sh: not found

anyone has an idea what's going on here ?

is autoconf/install-sh intended to be symlinked into some subdirs, or is 
there a missing path prefix ?

i suspect there is some portability bug somewhere where gnu-specific 
behaviour is assumed (as opposed to POSIX).

best regards,
