[ADMB Users] Build ADMB 11.1

I am having problems installingADMB 11.1 from the source on the website ie


The source appears to build correctly, but fails when trying to run the simple example. I have RTFM'd to the letter but it seems that the instructions are incomplete and various items are not getting picked up in the path.... (see below) What directories does ADMB need to be in the path?


admb simple.

*** adlink -s
g++ -o "/home/mpayne/Misc/admb"/contrib/lib/libcontrib.a "/home/mpayne/Misc/admb"/lib/libadmb.a
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/4.8/../../../x86_64-linux-gnu/crt1.o: In function `_start':
(.text+0x20): undefined reference to `main'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Error: Could not build

The build process has changed.  Check the link below.


It should be simpler and easier for everyone, but may need some fine tuning.

Feedback from Barak Pearlmutter was used for the the changes.  Such as the
eliminating the need to set System Variables.  Although, it will still work if they
are set.

If you would like to contribute man pages, please let me know.

I can work the man page; I have thus far been responsible for it.
I assume we don't want to write a 5460 line beast of a man page;
however any content that people want included in the man page shown in
the Debian package.
Honestly, I think that focusing on the standard Linux build process
and including the man page in the default build process will  make
getting admb into the standard linux pipeline.
Barak Pearlmutter is probably a critical resource for this activity;
however he cannot work on this alone.  Has anyone looked at the
patches he has suggested? If the build process needs to be cleaned up,
who within admb
is willing to work with us on it?
