Running build --help produces the following error:

Advanced options:
:./build: line 81: ./src/scripts/configure: No such file or directory
./build: line 82: ./src/scripts/configure: No such file or directory
  bigemulator     compile for BigSim simulator
  ooc             compile with out of core support
  syncft          compile with Charm++ fault tolerance support
  mlogft          compile with Charm++ message logging fault tolerance support
  papi            compile with PAPI performance counter support (if any)

Error was showing up in the wrong place due the the paginator. It's actually in the "Enable/disable features" section, which runs configure --help.

Enable/disable features:
./build: line 81: ./src/scripts/configure: No such file or directory
./build: line 82: ./src/scripts/configure: No such file or directory
  --with-production       build Charm++ with all optimizations for maximum performance, and disabling all above features

This was caused by the removal of configure from the git repository, which is now regenerated from during the build process. We run autoreconf before packaging a tarball, so `./build --help` should work fine there. I'm not sure how best to handle the problem when building directly from git.

What is the command to run autoreconf without creating a build directory?

#5 Updated by Phil Miller 19 days ago should get you a readily-built tarball snapshot, with the configure script and other bits suitably generated.
