When trying to build, after executing ./setup.sh error occures:
| if LC_ALL=C grep '@[a-zA-Z0-9_][a-zA-Z0-9_]*@' t/ax/test-defs.sh-t; then echo "t/ax/test-defs.sh contains unexpanded substitution (see lines above)"; exit 1; fi; chmod a-w t/ax/test-defs.sh-t && mv -f t/ax/test-defs.sh-t t/ax/test-defs.sh
| help2man: can't get `--help' info from automake-1.15

| make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
This seems to be an incompatibilty between automake-1.15 and perl, but i'm to stupid to tell yocto to patch it before building. Pls. advice.
Oops, somehow the headline misses an end to be complete...sorry for that.
Thanks for the suggestion. I already tried, but did not succeed to find a suitable place to put anything, which will not be deleted by the whole bunch of building-scripts during the next build. Sorry, but this (combination of intel-scripts and yocto) is one of the worst build-systems i've ever seen. Also putting .rpm archives containing the important stuff into a .tar.gz archive, which is packed into a .zip archive is rather - hmmm - special. :-)
Luckily it looks like i found a suitable way around the whole yocto-mess; maybe this helps other people, which also are not yocto-fans:
For me it seems, the sample_encoder,... examples from the SDK work now in my environment, which consists of a rather off-the-shelf LFS/BLFS (approx. version 8.1) with added iHD driver binary and the libva and libdrm built from the according intel/iotg-lin-gfx-xxxx git repositories. That seems to be all it needs to make the examples from SDK run. It's a little bit confusing, that in the "completely free" version of libva the vainfo tool has been moved to another repository (libva-utils), while its still in the iotg-lin-gfx-libva, which is the suitable one for the "not-so-free" iHD driver...
