In the Planeshift page you mentioned, it is said to comment the line AM_USE_UNITTESTCPP. That's why you get the error.

By the way I felt on some other troubles when I tried to build environment for Planeshift too.

I did have to install autoconf, automake, libtool package in order to build Cal3D.

Maybe this keep poeple away from frustration.

I am running kubuntu (gutsy) and tried to compile cal3d from source in order to compile PlaneShift.
For this I was following the compilation guide at

Everything went fine until I got into trouble here:
/home/user/development/cal3d$ autoreconf --install --force
/home/user/development/cal3d$ ./configure --prefix=/home/user/development/cal3d
/home/user/development/cal3d$ make
/home/user/development/cal3d$ make install

When I issued
/home/user/development/cal3d$ ./configure --prefix=/home/user/development/cal3d
It exited with the following error:
checking whether g++ supports -fno-rtti... yes
./configure: line 20126: syntax error near unexpected token `UNITTESTCPP,'
./configure: line 20126: ` PKG_CHECK_MODULES(UNITTESTCPP, unittest++ >= 0.1, unittest_enabled="yes", unittest_enabled="no" )'

this would be the relevant codepiece in ./configure (starting at line in question):
PKG_CHECK_MODULES(UNITTESTCPP, unittest++ >= 0.1, unittest_enabled="yes", unitte$
if test "$unittest_enabled" = "yes" ; then

As a result, there is no makefile to run make with.
How to resolve this problem?
