[Rpcemu] Allegro not installed Mint 17

Phew, thanks everybody I have now sorted it, I found the solution at:


"This comes about because aclocal cannot find allegro.m4. aclocal does 
not seem to search in /usr/local/share/aclocal for m4 files. This means 
that if you built allegro from sources yourself, you probably will have 
to move the file `/usr/local/share/aclocal/allegro.m4` to 

I did not build Allegro from sources myself, but I copied (too timid to 
move - I might break something else) Allegro.m4 to the second location. 
It still did not compile straight away, I got the DSO error that struck 
with Mint 16. However, repeating the process as previously suggested by 
Kai and slightly modified by me worked a treat, which is to say:

make clean
LIBS="-lm -lpthread" ./configure --enable-dynarec

Back to RiscOS happiness.
