Building hamlib on Ubuntu from trunk (04/2015)

This instruction is written on Ubuntu 14.10 x86_64.

Get the required tools for building:

sudo apt-get install automake libtool build-essential make texinfo

Get files from git

git clone
cd hamlib
chmod +x

This instruction is for hamlib- The readme and Install file specify to use ./configure, but in the latest official github that file is renamed to ./ If you instead use it will work just fine then.
This will take time for a cup of tea.

Then you can install (and uninstall) witht his command:

sudo make install

If you encounter this error: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This is what fixed it:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall libhamlib2
