Release: 4.1 Build date: Fri Feb 18 22:30:13 2011

Summary: A GNU Tool for Automatically Configuring Source Code
GNU Autoconf is a tool for configuring source code and makefiles. Using
autoconf, programmers can create portable and configurable packages,
because the person building the package is allowed to specify various
configuration options.

You should install autoconf if you are developing software and would
like to create shell scripts to configure your source code packages.

Note that the autoconf package is not required for the end user who may
be configuring software with an autoconf-generated script; autoconf is
only required for the generation of the scripts, not their use.






* Mon Jan 31 2011
  - Cosmetic changes to spec file
* Fri Dec 10 2010
  - update to 2.68 to include the patch
    * * AC_MSG_ERROR (and AS_ERROR) can once again be followed immediately by
    `dnl'.  Regression introduced in 2.66.
    * * AC_INIT again allows URLs with '?' for its BUG-REPORT argument.
    Regression introduced in 2.66.
    * * AC_REPLACE_FUNCS again allows a non-literal argument, such as a shell
    variable that expands to a list of functions to check.  Regression
    introduced in 2.66.
    * * AT_BANNER() with empty argument will cause visual separation from previous
    test category.
    AC_RUN_IFELSE now warn if the first argument failed to use
    AC_LANG_SOURCE or AC_LANG_PROGRAM to generate the conftest file
    contents.  A new macro AC_LANG_DEFINES_PROVIDED exists if you have
    a compelling reason why you cannot use AC_LANG_SOURCE but must
    avoid the warning.
    * * Newly obsolete macros
    The following macros have been marked obsolete.  New programs
    should use the corresponding Gnulib modules.  Gnulib not only
    detects a larger set of portability problems with these functions,
    but also provides complete workarounds.
* Sun Sep 19 2010
  - added patch autoconf-2.67-fix_dnl.patch to fix regression in
    AC_MSG_ERROR expansion (undefined macro: AS_MESSAGE_LOG_FDdnl)
* Wed Aug 18 2010
  - Update to 2.67:
    * New macro AC_FC_LINE_LENGTH to accept long Fortran source code
    * AC_PREPROC_IFELSE now keeps the preprocessed output in the
      conftest.i file for inspection by the commands in the
      ACTION-IF-TRUE argument.
    * autoreconf passes warning flags to new enough versions of
    * Running an Autotest testsuite in parallel mode no longer triggers
      a race condition that could cause the testsuite run to end early,
      fixing a sporadic failure in autoconf's own testsuite.  Bug
      present since introduction of parallel tests in 2.63b.
    Major changes in Autoconf 2.66 (2010-07-02) [stable]
    * AC_FUNC_MMAP works in C++ mode again.  Regression introduced in
    * Use of m4_divert without a named diversion now issues a syntax
      warning, since it is seldom right to change diversions behind
      autoconf's back.
    * The macros AC_TYPE_INT8_T, AC_TYPE_INT16_T, AC_TYPE_INT32_T, and
      AC_TYPE_INT64_T work again.  Regression introduced in 2.65.
    * AC_PROG_INSTALL correctly uses `shtool' again.  Regression
      introduced in 2.64.
    * Autoconf should work on EBCDIC hosts.
    * AC_CHECK_DECL and AC_CHECK_DECLS accept optional function
      argument types for overloaded C++ functions.
    * AS_SET_CATFILE accepts nonliterals in its variable name argument
    * Autotest testsuites accept an option --recheck to rerun tests
      that failed or passed unexpectedly during the last non-debug
      testsuite run.
    * AC_ARG_ENABLE and AC_ARG_WITH now also accept `+' signs in
      `--enable-*' and `--with-*' arguments, converting them to
      underscores for the variable names.
    * In configure scripts, loading CONFIG_SITE no longer searches
      PATH, and problems in loading the configuration site files are
    * Autotest testsuites may optionally provide colored test results.
    * The previously undocumented Autotest macros AT_ARG_OPTION and
      AT_ARG_OPTION_ARG have seen bug fixes and are documented now.
      AT_ARG_OPTION has been changed in that the negative of a long
      option --OPTION is now --no-OPTION rather than --noOPTION.
    * The macro AS_LITERAL_IF is slightly more conservative; text
      containing shell quotes are no longer treated as literals.
      Furthermore, a new macro, AS_LITERAL_WORD_IF, adds an additional
      level of checking that no whitespace occurs in literals.
    * The macros AS_TR_SH and AS_TR_CPP no longer expand their results.
    * The following macros are now documented:
    * New macro AC_FC_FIXEDFORM to accept fixed-form Fortran.
* Mon Jun 28 2010
  - use %_smp_mflags
* Mon May 31 2010
  - add empty install section
* Fri May 28 2010
  - split out test suite that takes 95% of the build time
* Wed Feb 17 2010
  - Update to 2.65
    * * Autoconf is now licensed under the GPLv3+.
    * * The manual is now shipped under the terms of the GNU FDL 1.3.
    * * config.status now provides a --config option to produce the configuration.
    * * Autoconf now requires GNU M4 1.4.6 or later. GNU M4 1.4.13 or
      later is recommended.
    * * Autotest testsuites accept an option --jobs[=N] for parallel testing.
      This feature is still in testing, and may not work on every
      platform, help in improving it would be appreciated.
* Sun Dec 06 2009
  - enable parallel building
* Fri Jul 17 2009
  - Add autoconf-xfail-test27.patch
    + It skips test 27 ([autom4te preselections]) as it's an
      incompatibility between autoconf 2.63 and automake 1.11
      ! This patch needs to be removed with autoconf 2.64 again !
