/autoconf, Generates automatic source code configuration scripts
2.69nb1, Package name:
autoconf-2.69nb1, 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

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

Bump all packages that use perl, or depend on a p5-* package, or
are called p5-*.
I hope that's all of them.

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

Update to 2.68, requested by adam for pkg-config-0.25.
* Noteworthy changes in release 2.68 (2010-09-22) [stable]
Released by Eric Blake, based on git versions 2.67.*.
** 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
** The macros AC_PREPROC_IFELSE, AC_COMPILE_IFELSE, AC_LINK_IFELSE, and
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.
** The macro m4_define_default is now documented.
** Symlinked config.cache files are supported; configure now tries to
update non-symlinked cache files atomically, so that concurrent configure
runs do not leave behind broken cache files. It is still unspecified
which subset or union of results is cached though.
** Autotest testsuites should not contain long text lines any more, and be
portable even when very many test groups are used.
** AT_CHECK semantics with respect to the Autotest variable $at_status and
shell execution environment of the arguments are documented now.
** AC_FC_LIBRARY_LDFLAGS now tolerates output from newer gfortran.
** 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.

Update to 2.67:
* Major changes in Autoconf 2.67 (2010-07-21) [stable]
Released by Eric Blake, based on git versions 2.66.*.
** AC_CONFIG_SUBDIRS with more than one subdirectory at a time works again.
Regression introduced in 2.66.
** AC_CHECK_SIZEOF of a pointer type works again. Regression introduced in
** New macro AC_FC_LINE_LENGTH to accept long Fortran source code lines.
** AC_PREPROC_IFELSE now keeps the preprocessed output in the conftest.i
file for inspection by the commands in the ACTION-IF-TRUE argument.
** AC_INIT again allows parentheses and other characters that are literal
in single- or double-quoted strings, and in quoted and unquoted
here-documents, for its PACKAGE and VERSION arguments. Regression
introduced in 2.66.
** autoreconf passes warning flags to new enough versions of aclocal.
** 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]
Released by Eric Blake, based on git versions 2.65.*.
** AC_FUNC_MMAP works in C++ mode again. Regression introduced in 2.65.
** 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
** 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 now.
** 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
** In configure scripts, loading CONFIG_SITE no longer searches PATH,
and problems in loading the configuration site files are diagnosed.
** 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.

AC_FUNC_ALLOCA should never define a prototype on the BSDs. Bump revision.
