Dec 26, 2011
* lib/m4sugar/general.m4 (_AS_DETECT_BETTER_SHELL): Define the macro `_AS_FORCE_REEXEC_WITH_CONFIG_SHELL' to `yes', so that the code in `_AS_DETECT_BETTER_SHELL' will cause autoconf-generated configure scripts to always re-execute themselves with $CONFIG_SHELL, if it's set in the environment. * doc/autoconf.texi (config.status Invocation): Update. * doc/install.texi (Defining Variables): Likewise. * NEWS: Likewise. * tests/m4sh.at: Add tests for the new semantics in ... (Configure re-execs self with CONFIG_SHELL): ... this new test group.

-*- text -*- Autoconf 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. Producing configuration scripts using Autoconf requires GNU M4 and Perl. You should install GNU M4 (version 1.4.6 or later is required; 1.4.14 or later is recommended) and Perl (5.005_03 or later) before configuring Autoconf, so that Autoconf's configure script can find them. The configuration scripts produced by Autoconf are self-contained, so their users do not need to have Autoconf (or GNU M4, Perl, etc.). You can get GNU M4 here: ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/m4/ The file INSTALL should be distributed with packages that use Autoconf-generated configure scripts and Makefiles that conform to the GNU coding standards. The package's README can just give an overview of the package, where to report bugs, and a pointer to INSTALL for instructions on compilation and installation. This removes the need to maintain many similar sets of installation instructions. Be sure to read BUGS and INSTALL. Mail suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org, report bugs to email@example.com, and submit patches to firstname.lastname@example.org. All changes can be tracked at the read-only email@example.com. Always include the Autoconf version number, which you can get by running `autoconf --version'. Archives of firstname.lastname@example.org can be found in <http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-autoconf/>, and similarly for the other mailing lists.
