Could not compile libxml2: /bin/rm: cannot remove `libtoolT’: No such file or directory

When I compile libxml2-2.7.8 under Ubuntu 11.04, it always complain that:

/bin/rm: cannot remove `libtoolT’: No such file or directory.

I did a search on google, but none of them works.

From the console output, I found that it failed because removing a file which does not exists.

So I edit the configure file, find the line which contains $RM “$cfgfile”, and replace it with $RM -f “$cfgfile”, then everything works.

(‘rm -f’ means do not stop even if the file doesn’t exists)
