I guess it would take some effort to understand why. The
devnav/src/Makefile.am just says:
bin_PROGRAMS = devnag
devnag_SOURCES = devnag.c
So it is not that which is requiring 1.6.3. I'm sure it makes no actual
difference which is used.
Also, automake should not have to be run at all in the course of a
normal build. Probably a timestamp problem.
Anyway, I'm very glad it worked after you got the config file.
devnag.c is assumed to be just compiled manually without problems.
For teTeX/TeX Live (and other distributions I imagine), we cannot
compile things "manually"; there are dozens of programs and a bunch of
architectures, and therefore everything has to get built with standard
Makefiles. This is one reason why many of the programs on CTAN are not
Some C libraries do not contain strcasecmp
Since TL does not attempt to support OS/2, this is not a problem for us.
All our architectures have strcasecmp; any even somewhat modern system
should have it. So I don't think you need to do anything more than you
have already done.
