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

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.71nb2, Package name: autoconf-2.71nb2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

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:
autoconf: update to 2.71.

* Noteworthy changes in release 2.71 (2021-01-28) [stable]

** Bug fixes, including:

*** Compilers that support C99 but not C2011 are detected correctly.

*** Compatibility improved with clang and Oracle C++.

*** Compatibility restored with automake's rules for regenerating configure.

*** Compatibility restored with old versions of std-gnu11.m4.

  Packages that wish to maintain compatibility with Autoconf 2.69 or
  older, should update their copy of std-gnu11.m4 from Gnulib as soon
  as practical, as the compatibility code bulks up the configure script.

  Packages that require Autoconf 2.70 can drop this file entirely.

Log message:
Update devel/autoconf to 2.70

2.70 deprecates a lot of stuff, so expect more warnings, but generally things
seem to work fine, so updating to 2.70 shouldn't break much.

Also update mk/gnu-config/*, as per the comment in devel/autoconf/Makefile.
mk/gnu-config/missing is not actually part of autoconf, but of automake, which
I did not update - however, the file was quite out of date, so I took the
liberty to update that one with the latest automake.

The change log is too long to include in this commit, given how many years
there were between 2.69 and 2.70. Check the file ChangeLog after `make
extract`.
