Today I was trying to upgrade to the latest Asterisk-Addons on my Asterisk server. I am using the 1.4 series (as you all should be by now)
and the most current release of Gentoo Linux. Because Gentoo uses somewhat “unstable” software I have differing versions of libtool.m4 and In order to get around this I had to do the following

# cd asterisk-addons-1.4.2
# cd asterisk-ooh323c
# nano configure

and then I had to hit control-w, and search for libtool.m4, once I found the section that it checked for this problem of the software being differing versions I commented it all out. Basically the whole section starting with the beginning if statement of the libtool check all the way to the bottom fi statement.

Next you’ll need to compile the Asterisk-Addons package by doing the following:

# cd ..  
# make  

Notice that you will be presented with yet another error that it can’t find the library file to copy for you when you try to issue the make install after compiling. This is a simple fix for now, just do this.

# cd asterisk-addons-1.4.2
# cd asterisk-ooh323c
# cd .libs
# cp libchan_h323.1.0.1

Now you can continue with the installation by running this

# cd ..
# make install

That’s it, you should now have chanooh323 available for your asterisk installation. If you have any difficulty let me know in the comments and I’ll try and help.

Thanks, I was pulling my hair out trying to compile the Asterisk addons in Gentoo.

You can solve, on gentoo, with a simple:

linuxbox# cd asterisk-ooh323c
linuxbox# libtoolize –copy –force
linuxbox# cd ..
linuxbox# make

It worked for me! Bye
