Summary0000234: separat build directory not supported

I get strange errors when I try to build graphviz 1.9 in a separat build directory:

    --prefix=/home/cludwig/tmp/testbed/usr --disable-shared --with-dynagraph

(I can provide a complete log upon request.)

When I tried the same with a CVS snapshot (05/17/2003) i got a
different error, but the build failed anyway.

Some programs (notably gcc) require you to build them in a separate
directory whence I routinely do so. Neither graphviz' README nor
doc/build.html state that you cannot do that with graphviz and the
resulting error messages are less than helpful. May I suggest that
you either remove the source directory dependencies from
or alternatively document the restriction?
