./devel/autoconf, Generates automatic source code configuration scripts

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.69nb5, Package name: autoconf-2.69nb5, Maintainer: wiz

Autoconf is an extensible package of m4 macros that produce shell
scripts to automatically configure software source code packages.
These scripts can adapt the packages to many kinds of UNIX-like
systems without manual user intervention. Autoconf creates a
configuration script for a package from a template file that lists the
operating system features that the package can use, in the form of m4
macro calls.

Log message:
Bump for perl-5.20.0.
Do it for all packages that
* mention perl, or
* have a directory name starting with p5-*, or
* depend on a package starting with p5-
like last time, for 5.18, where this didn't lead to complaints.
Let me know if you have any this time.

Like last time, where this caused no complaints.

Drop superfluous PKG_DESTDIR_SUPPORT, "user-destdir" is default these days.

I hope that's all of them.

Log message:
Update to 2.69:

* Noteworthy changes in release 2.69 (2012-04-24) [stable]

** Autoconf now requires perl 5.6 or better (but generated configure
   scripts continue to run without perl).

* Noteworthy changes in release 2.68b (2012-03-01) [beta]
  Released by Eric Blake, based on git versions 2.68.*.

** Autoconf-generated configure scripts now unconditionally re-execute
   themselves with $CONFIG_SHELL, if that's set in the environment.

** The texinfo documentation no longer specifies "front-cover" or
   "back-cover" texts, so that it may now be included in Debian's
   "main" section.

** Support for the Go programming language has been added.  The new macro
   AC_LANG_GO sets variables GOC and GOFLAGS.

** AS_LITERAL_IF again treats '=' as a literal.  Regression introduced in
   2.66.

** The macro AS_EXECUTABLE_P, present since 2.50, is now documented.

** Macros

- AC_PROG_LN_S and AS_LN_S now fall back on 'cp -pR' (not 'cp -p') if 'ln -s'
  does not work.  This works better for symlinks to directories.

- New macro AC_HEADER_CHECK_STDBOOL.

- New and updated macros for Fortran support:

    AC_FC_CHECK_BOUNDS to enable array bounds checking
    AC_F77_IMPLICIT_NONE and AC_FC_IMPLICIT_NONE to disable implicit integer
    AC_FC_MODULE_EXTENSION to compute the Fortran 90 module name extension
    AC_FC_MODULE_FLAG for the Fortran 90 module search path flag
    AC_FC_MODULE_OUTPUT_FLAG for the Fortran 90 module output directory flag
    AC_FC_PP_SRCEXT for preprocessed Fortran source files extensions
    AC_FC_PP_DEFINE for the Fortran preprocessor define flag
