A    smartmontools/os_qnxnto.h
A    smartmontools/dev_tunnelled.h
 U   smartmontools
Checked out revision 3110.

prepare build by calling

# ./

the output should look like this installing `./config.guess' installing `./config.sub' installing `./install-sh' installing `./missing' installing `./depcomp'

now run the created script...

# ./config.guess

... and check what your plattform is


now run ./configure

# ./configure

the output looks like this:

smartd is not supported up to now
