	* lib/autotest/general.m4 (AT_CLEANUP): Rename AT_help as
	AT_help_all.

	(at_times_p): this.

	executables, not bin/ executables!  Otherwise all the magic needed
	to find non installed files is turned off.  This caused a failure
	of test 40 and 41 that ran aclocal 1.8 which in turn ran autom4te
	as found in its environment (sent by tests/autoreconf): pointing
	to bin/autom4te that could not find its files.

	the sake of "mv" program that are interactive when overwriting a

	* bin/autoheader.in, bin/autom4te.in, bin/autoscan.in,
	* bin/autoupdate.in: Adjust.
	Use &verb, not &verbose.

2003-08-21  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* bin/autoheader.in (&parse_args): Use &parse_warnings and
	&parse_WARNINGS.
	($help): Use Autom4te::ChannelDefs::usage.
	* bin/autoscan.in: Use Autom4te::ChannelDefs.
	* lib/Autom4te/General.pm: Don't export error: you don't own it.

2003-08-21  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	First stab at preserving warnings between calls to autom4te,
	including when the cache is used.

	There are still several issues: (i) there are too many runs of m4
	(one for include, one for warnings, and some more), (ii) warnings
	spreading on several lines are not handled gracefully, (iii) the
	code meant to have the call stack display for errors does not work
	(its handling should move from m4 to autom4te).

	* bin/autom4te.in Autom4te::Channels, Autom4te::ChannelDefs):
	Use them.
	(@preselect): Add m4_warn.
	($exit_status): Remove, use $exit_code.
	($help): Use Autom4te::ChannelDefs::usage.
	(&handle_m4): No longer define the m4_warnings.
	At each run, extract and report the warnings.
	Always cache the result, including if the exit status is on
	failure, since if nothing changes, we should result in the same
	failure, hence we can use the cache.
	* lib/m4sugar/m4sugar.m4 (m4_warning_ifelse, _m4_warning_ifelse)
	(_m4_warning_error_ifelse, __m4_warning_error_ifelse, _m4_warn):
	Remove.
	(m4_warn): Redefine as a do-nothing: it is its invocation that
	matters, as warnings are now reported via traces.
	* lib/autoconf/general.m4 (AC_DIAGNOSE): Don't make it a copy of
	the contents of m4_warn: make it _call_ m4_warn, so that tracing
	the latter reveals calls to the former.

	Adjust the tests.

	* tests/m4sugar.at (m4@&t@_warn): Use existing warning categories.

2003-08-21  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* bin/autoreconf.pm (Autom4te::Channels, Autom4te::ChannelDefs):

	* lib/Autom4te/General.pm (&find_file, &mtime, &update_file)
	(&xsystem, &contents): Remove, since they are exported by...

	Don't mix the detailed output of failed test with the summary of
	failures.  Rather, append detailed log afterwards.

2003-06-23  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	Overhaul Autotest's logging: generate separate log files

	* lib/autotest/general.m4 (AT_INIT): Use a single redirected
	file descriptor, write 0 to at_status_file instead of setting
	at_status=0, initialize some new variables (at_status_file,
	at_group_log, at_suite_log, at_tee_pipe).  Remove the cruft
	to rerun the tests, instead append the at_group_log to the
	at_suite_log when a test fails.
	(AT_SETUP): pipe the test case's output into at_tee_pipe,
	with the AS_MESSAGE_LOG_FD redirected to stdout.
	(AT_CLEANUP): save the output status in $at_status_file
	and restore it, redirect the AS_MESSAGE_LOG_FD back to
	its original place.
	(AT_CHECK): since tests are run with a redirected stdout,

	into echo, and don't redirect the output of testing stdout
	and stderr.

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Present But Cannot Be Compiled): New.

2003-02-28  Alexandre Duret-Lutz  <adl@gnu.org>

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Limitations of Make): Remove the section

	constructing a DOS-style absolute path, we don't want to split it
	on the colon.

	* tests/atspecific.m4 (AT_CHECK_CONFIGURE): Fix typo
	in description.

2003-02-25  Pavel Roskin  <proski@gnu.org>

	* lib/autoconf/c.m4 (AC_LANG_FUNC_LINK_TRY(C)): Define $1 to an

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Obsolete Macros): Fix typos (insert empty
	arg, AC_DEFINE -> AC_DEFINE_UNQUOTED) in documentation for

2002-11-14  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* Makefile.maint: Sync with Bison, i.e.:
	(po-check): Scan .l and .y files instead of the
	.c and the .h files that they generate.  This fixes the bug
	reported by Tim Van Holder in:
	<http://mail.gnu.org/pipermail/bison-patches/2002-November/001352.html>
	Look for N_ as well as for _.  Try to avoid matching #define for

	than assigning in main, to avoid HP cc +O3 optimizing it away.

2002-11-12  Peter Eisentraut  <peter_e@gmx.net>

	* lib/autoconf/status.m4 (_AC_OUTPUT_CONFIG_STATUS): Add -q
	option.  Process --recheck after parsing all options.  Pass -q

2002-11-05  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* lib/autoconf/autoheader.m4 (_AH_TEMPLATE_OLD, _AH_VERBATIM_OLD):
	Remove.
	We _have_ to stop using the old compatibility scheme that tried to
	avoid useless backslashes because Libtool 1.4.3 contains a
	AC_DEFINE([error_t], [int],
	[Define to a type to use for \`error_t' if it is not
	otherwise available.])
	We _have_ to quote the single quote and backslashes with \.  The
	old compatibility scheme saw that ` was backslashed, and therefore
	did not quote the single quote.  Hence before this patch, Autoconf
	was not compatible with Libtool.

2002-11-04  Paul Eggert  <eggert@twinsun.com>

	* lib/m4sugar/m4sh.m4 (AS_SHELL_SANITIZE): Set the following variables,

	* lib/autoconf/lang.m4 (_AC_COMPILER_OBJEXT):
	(_AC_COMPILER_EXEEXT_DEFAULT): Likewise.

2002-10-29  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* tests/torture.at (Deep Package): New test.

	Reported by Paul D. Smith.

2002-10-08  Paul Eggert  <eggert@twinsun.com>

	* lib/m4sugar/m4sh.m4 (AS_SHELL_SANITIZE): Unset ENV, MAIL,
	MAILPATH and set PS1, PS2, PS4 to default values, to work
	around bug in pre-3.0 UWIN ksh reported by Bruce Lilly.
	For LC_ALL etc, first try to set to "C" as POSIX requires and as
	the Autoconf documentation specifies; fall back to "unset" only if
	this fails.  Use a shell for-loop for this rather than an m4 loop,
	to shorten the output script.

2002-08-30  Paul Eggert  <eggert@twinsun.com>

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Special Shell Variables): Mention POSIX
	1003.1-2001's requirements for CDPATH.  Give a simpler workaround
	for the CDPATH problem.  Document PWD.
	(Limitations of Builtins): Document the problem that "cd $foo" and
	"ls $foo" may refer to different directories in shells conforming
	to POSIX 1003.1-2001.  Use PS1 rather than CDPATH for "unset"
	example, since the old example is now out of date.

	* lib/autoconf/general.m4 (_AC_INIT_SRCDIR): Reject FOO if "cd
	FOO" and "ls FOO" talk about different directories; this catches
	problems when POSIX 1003.1-2001 "cd" fails due to symlink
	spaghetti.

	* lib/m4sugar/m4sh.m4 (AS_SHELL_SANITIZE): Use AS_UNSET instead
	of rolling our own unset.
	(_AS_PREPARE): $as_unset CDPATH instead of AS_UNSETting it, since
	in practice we needn't worry about CDPATH if unset doesn't work.

	* lib/m4sugar/m4sh.m4 (_AS_PATH_SEPARATOR_PREPARE):

	This improves on an earlier suggestion by H. Peter Anvin.

2002-05-16  Paul Eggert  <eggert@twinsun.com>

	AC_FUNC_FNMATCH now tests only for POSIX compatibility.
	AC_FUNC_FNMATCH_GNU also tests for GNU extensions.
	Both macros now accept an optional source-dir arg.
	New macro AC_GNU_SOURCE to define _GNU_SOURCE.

	* NEWS: Document this.

	* lib/autoconf/functions.m4 (_AC_FUNC_FNMATCH): New macro.

	* lib/autoconf/functions.m4 (AC_FUNC_SETVBUF_REVERSED):
	If prototypes are supported, use them to check this at compile-time,
	instead of trying to check it at run-time.  If we must do a run-time
	check, assume that setvbuf is standard when cross-compiling, as
	nonstandard setvbuf occurs only on ancient and unlikely hosts.
	Bug reported by Paul D. Smith.

	* lib/autoconf/functions.m4 (AC_FUNC_GETLOADAVG): Add optional
	argument specifying location of getloadavg.c.  This removes a

	textutils.
	* doc/autoconf.texi (Particular Functions): Document this.
	Also, mention HAVE_NLIST_H rather than NLIST_STRUCT, since
	that's what the code does; this fixes a bug reported by

	Minor spelling and grammar fixes.

	* doc/autoconf.texi: Follow the outline suggested in the GNU
	Sample Texts sections of the Texinfo 4.2 manual.  Most
	importantly, this makes sure that the copyright notices appear in
	all output formats.  You probably need Texinfo 4.2 to generate
	the manual now.

	Fix some bugs when using "$@" when there might be zero positional
	arguments in cases where this matters.

	that is not portable to Zsh.

2002-04-19  Alexandre Duret-Lutz  <duret_g@epita.fr>

	* bin/autoupdate.in (handle_autoconf_macros): Honor AU_DEFUNs

	part into...
	(_AS_PREPARE): this new macro.
	(AS_PREPARE): New.
	(AS_INIT): Invoke AS_SHELL_SANITIZE.
	* tests/m4sh.at (AT_DATA_LINENO): Use _AS_PREPARE.

	Adjust Autoconf and Autotest.

	* lib/autoconf/status.m4 (_AC_OUTPUT_CONFIG_STATUS):
	Invoke _AS_PREPARE (not AS_PREPARE) in addition to
	AS_SHELL_SANITIZE.

	Use this M4sh to generate Autoconf's shell scripts.

	* tests/wrapsh.as: New, precursor of wrapsh.in.
	* tests/Makefile.am: Include lib/freeze.mk to get the dependencies
	on Autotest and M4sh.
	($(TESTSUITE)): Use $(autotest_m4f_dependencies).
	(wrapsh.in): New target.
	* bin/autoconf.as: New, precursor of autoconf.in.

	with indented comments in rules.

2002-04-09  Andreas Schwab  <schwab@suse.de>

	ac_top_builddir when setting ac_abs_top_builddir.

2002-04-06  Kevin Ryde  <user42@zip.com.au>

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Systemology): Add link to Unix V7 online docs.
	(Portable Shell): Cross reference to Systemology.

2002-04-05  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* bin/autoreconf.in (autoreconf): Be sure to accumulate the
	directories when descending in a SUBDIRS.
	Reported by Ezra Peisach.

2002-04-04  Andreas Schwab  <schwab@suse.de>

	* lib/m4sugar/m4sh.m4 (_AS_PATH_WALK): Only simplify if path
	contains no literal separators.

2002-04-03  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* lib/autoconf/status.m4 (_AC_CONFIG_FILE, _AC_CONFIG_HEADER)
	(_AC_CONFIG_COMMAND, _AC_CONFIG_LINK): New.
	Use dnl, not the KILL diversion.
	Extracted from...
	(AC_CONFIG_FILES, AC_CONFIG_HEADERS, AC_CONFIG_COMMANDS)
	(AC_CONFIG_LINKS): here.
	Adjust.
	Don't use the KILL diversion, as it kills spurious output, which
	results in failures being hidden.
	Use m4_defn where appropriate.

	after the second argument.

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Introduction): The GNATS base moved.

2002-03-25  Paul Eggert  <eggert@twinsun.com>

	* tests/m4sh.at: Don't rely on "PATH=test:$PATH test-1" working
	as POSIX requires, as it doesn't work with Zsh.
	* doc/autoconf.texi (Assignments): Document the problem.

2002-03-25  Alexandre Duret-Lutz  <duret_g@epita.fr>

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Limitations of Make): Mention more issue

	problem with here-document buffer boundaries.

	* lib/m4sugar/m4sh.m4 (_AS_LINENO_PREPARE): Unset ENV and BASH_ENV

	who put strange things like "cd" commands in their environments.

2002-03-19  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* tests/semantics.at (AC_C_BIGENDIAN): s/unknow/unknown/.
	From Aaron Ucko.

2002-03-19  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* bin/autoscan.in (scan_file): Specify the location in `&used'
	invocations.
	From Nicolas Joly.

2002-03-19  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* doc/autoconf.texi: Adjust @code/@command, @xref/@ref usage.
	From Nishio Futoshi.

2002-03-18  Paul Eggert  <eggert@twinsun.com>

	(Limitations of Usual Tools): Add mkdir section.

	* lib/m4sugar/m4sh.m4 (_AS_MKDIR_P_PREPARE): New macro.
	(AS_MKDIR_P): Require it.  Use mkdir -p if available, falling
	back on AS_DIRNAME to compute prefixes otherwise; this is
	roughly what mkinstalldirs does.  That way, we need not have
	our own filename disassembler.  The old disassembler did not
	work with Solaris 8 dtksh, which is ksh Version M-12/28/93d.

	* lib/autotest/general.m4 (AT_INIT, AT_CLEANUP):
	Create at_test_all by a series of assignments,
	not by a single assignment of a long string.  The latter causes ksh
	version 11/16/88g to silently misbehave on OpenServer 5.0.6a,
	presumably because of a buffer overrun.

2002-03-14  Paul Eggert  <eggert@twinsun.com>

	* lib/autotest/general.m4 (at_times_skip):
	Renamed from at_times.  Now a boolean.
	ksh93 Version M-12/28/93d doesn't like 'x=times; $x'; it
	says 'times: not found'.

2002-03-14  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* bin/autoreconf.in (&study_gettextize): New.
	(&autoreconf): Handle newest gettextize.
	Rerun aclocal if needed.
	Suggested by Andreas Schwab.

2002-03-08  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* bin/autom4te.in (&handle_m4): Do not foreach with `$_' as it
	aliases the actual variables, and modifications of the former
	affect the latter.

2002-03-08  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* bin/autom4te.in (&handle_m4): Protect us from corrupted file
	because of C-c: have m4 output in tmp files, then mv them.

	* bin/autoconf.in, bin/autoheader.in, bin/autom4te.in,

	parallel builds.

2002-03-04  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Transforming Names): Equality between target
	and host is irrelevant.
	(Specifying Names, Canonicalizing): Remove all references to the
	backward compatibility hooks.  Rather, collect them all into...
	(Hosts and Cross-Compilation): this new section.
	* doc/install.texi (System Type): Ditto.
	* lib/autoconf/general.m4 (AC_CANONICAL_HOST): Explicitly state
	that `--host' implies cross-compilation.

2002-03-04  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Evaluation Macros): New.
	* lib/m4sugar/m4sugar.m4 (m4_lquote): Remove, it is totally
	useless.
	(_m4_foreach): Define the variant with immediate evaluation so
	that it contains exactly the items, not an expression which
	evaluation is the current item.
	(m4_re_string, m4_re_word): Don't over quote them.

2002-03-04  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	Instead of having stacking `shift's evaluated at the end, let
	`foreach' loops immediately evaluate them.

	(m4_text_wrap): Use m4_foreach, which is finally correct _and_
	efficient.
	(m4_foreach_quoted, m4_car_quoted, _m4_foreach_quoted): Remove, as
	it was only a hack for m4_text_wrap.
	(m4_car2): Remove, replaced by...
	(m4_cdr): New.
	(_m4_foreach): Adjust.
	* lib/autoconf/general.m4 (_AC_INIT_PREPARE): Adjust, and use
	m4_bpatsubst for clarification.

2002-03-04  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Changequote is Evil): New.

2002-03-03  Kevin Ryde  <user42@zip.com.au>

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Portable Shell): Mention 32-byte #! length limit
	on old systems like SunOS.

2002-03-01  Peter Eisentraut  <peter_e@gmx.net>

	AC_PREFIX_PROGRAM fails with dashed program names

	* lib/autoconf/general.m4 (AC_PREFIX_PROGRAM): Just use a fresh
	variable when looking for the prefix program.
	Now it also works for shell variables.

	cross-compilers, too.  This undoes some of the most recent change
	to this file.

2002-02-05  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* tests/Makefile.am (check_SCRIPTS): Use it, instead of WRAPPERS,

2002-01-30  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Writing testsuite.at): AT_CLEANUP no longer
	needs an argument.

2002-01-28  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* lib/autotest/general.m4 (AT_INIT): Don't be ridiculous: adjust
	AUTOTEST_PATH *after* it was set.
	Don't put `.' in the PATH: the user should be precise and `./' if
	needed.  In addition, given that the test suite does some `cd', if
	`.' is in the path, the `tested programs' sections will report
	programs found in the test suite's directory, while during the
	tests (performed in their own directory), these programs are no
	longer visible.  In other words, the results is confusing and
	useless.
	* tests/m4sh.at: Adjust: don't rely on `.' being in the PATH.

2002-01-24  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	Version 2.52g.

	* lib/m4sugar/m4sh.m4 (_AS_LINENO_PREPARE): Use PATH_SEPARATOR.

	From Andreas Buening.

	Suggested by Jonathan Kamens.

2001-12-14  Aaron M. Ucko  <amu@alum.mit.edu>

	Remove $filepath, useless.
	(&scan_makefile): Don't remove the $(FOO), ${FOO} and @FOO@
	variables, they are really part of the tokens.

2001-11-22  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Installation Directory Variables): Englishoes
	spotted by Jim Meyering.

2001-11-16  Paul Eggert  <eggert@twinsun.com>

	This patch implements a `long double' suggestion by Oliver Kiddle.

	* lib/autoconf/c.m4 (AC_LANG_BOOL_COMPILE_TRY(C)): Make the array
	static, to catch errors if the value isn't known at compile-time
	and the compiler supports dynamic arrays.  Change its name from
	`_array_' to `test_array' to avoid potential name clashes.
	(AC_C_LONG_DOUBLE): Make it a compile-time test, not a run-time
	test.  Do not define HAVE_LONG_DOUBLE if `long double' is no
	better than double.  Catch a bug in GCC 2.95.2 x86.
	* doc/autoconf.texi (C Compiler): Document the above.
	* NEWS: Likewise.

2001-11-13  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* tests/m4sh.at (LINENO): Protect from autom4te's substitution by
	hand.

2001-11-13  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* lib/autotest/general.m4 (AT_INIT): After having run the test
	group, go back to the initial directory, not to at_suite_dir.

2001-11-13  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* tests/atspecific.m4 (AT_DATA_M4SUGAR, AT_DATA_M4SH)
	(AT_DATA_AUTOCONF):  Also protect @&t@ from autom4te.
	(AT_CHECK_AUTOCONF, AT_CHECK_AUTOHEADER): Pass no --include
	option.
	(AT_CHECK_CONFIGURE): Use absolute paths.
	(_AT_CHECK_AC_MACRO): Create aclocal.m4 with AC_STATE_SAVE in it.
	The problem is still the old one: there is no means in M4 (that I
	know about) to create a defining macro, because there is no means
	to create `$1' etc., therefore, the defining macro ``swallows''
	all the arguments meant to the defined macro.

2001-11-13  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* tests/atspecific.m4 (AT_DATA_AUTOCONF): New.

	* tests/aclocal.m4: Remove, as it is no longer used.

2001-11-13  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* lib/autotest/general.m4: Change `tests?' into `groups?' in
	variable names when referring to a single test group, or to
	`suite' when referring to the whole test suite.
	`at_last_test' is removed: m4 compute at_format itself.
	(at_stdout, at_stder1, at_stderr): New variables.
	(AT_CHECK): Use them.

2001-11-13  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* lib/autotest/general.m4 (AT_INIT): Be sure to put `.', relative,
	in PATH.
	Create `testsuite.dir/003/run' instead of `testsuite.003'.
	Do it as soon as a test fails, don't wait till the end of the test
	suite.
	Don't remove $as_me.[0-9]*, since these files no longer exist.

2001-11-13  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* tests/tools.at: Use absolute paths, since we are no longer run
	in place.

2001-11-13  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	Now that tests are running in their own private dir, there is no
	need to list the files to remove at the end of tests groups.

	* lib/autotest/general.m4 (_AT_CLEANUP_FILE, AT_CLEANUP_FILES):
	(AT_data_files, at_data_files): Remove.
	(AT_CLEANUP, AT_DATA): Simplify.
	(AT_INIT): Adjust.
	Remove the group dir if !debug && !failed.
	* tests/atspecific.m4: Adjust.

2001-11-13  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	Start a new layout for Autotest: `testsuite' creates
	`testsuite.dir' in which the at-check-line etc. files are to be
	found, and `testsuite.dir/003' where the test group 3 is run.

	* lib/autotest/general.m4 (AT_INIT): at_tests_dir,
	at_check_line_file, at_format, at_test_normalized, at_group_dir
	are new variables.
	Create the directories.
	Use absolute paths for at- files.
	(AT_CHECK): Adjust.

2001-11-11  Michael Matz  <matz@kde.org>

	* m4sugar.m4 (_m4_foreach): Make it linear instead quadratic.
	(m4_car2): New.
	(m4_car): Properly quote arguments.

2001-11-13  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* tests/aclocal.m4 (AC_STATE_SAVE): s/LIBOBJS/LIB@&t@OBJS/ to cope
	with stricter rules on LIBOBJS.

2001-11-12  Paul Eggert  <eggert@twinsun.com>

	* lib/autoconf/c.m4 (AC_C_PROTOTYPES): Define __PROTOTYPES too.

	* lib/autoconf/headers.m4, lib/autoconf/libs.m4,
	* lib/autoconf/programs.m4, lib/autoconf/specific.m4,
	* lib/autoconf/types.m4: When invoking AC_DEFINE and friends,
	specify to what the macro should be defined (typically to 1).

2001-11-12  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* lib/autoconf/functions.m4 (AC_FUNC_STRTOD): AC_SUBST POW_LIB.
	From Jim Meyering.

2001-11-12  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* lib/autoconf/programs.m4 (_AC_PROG_LEX_YYTEXT_DECL): Use
	AC_TRY_EVAL to run $LEX, not AC_TRY_COMMAND.  This validates the
	definition used by Automake where LEX is +/- "${missing} lex" and
	`missing' itself contains variables.

2001-11-12  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* lib/autotest/general.m4 (AT_INIT): Push KILL at the end.
	Now that M4sh pushes BODY, the comments were output at the end of
	the test suites.

2001-11-08  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* bin/autoreconf.in (&autoreconf): Run aclocal before tracing, so
	that we can trace macros from aclocal.m4.
	Trace AC_PROG_LIBTOOL, not AM_PROG_LIBTOOL, since the latter is
	obsoleted, and redirect to the former anyway.
	Reported by Ralf Corsepius.

2001-11-08  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* bin/autoreconf.in (&autoreconf): AC_CONFIG_SUBIDRS are to be

	instead of successive calls to autoconf.
	Add a nonexistent subdirectory to exercise the patch above.

	Use and export them.
	(&find_configure_ac): Optionally take a directory where to look at.
	* bin/autoreconf.in (&parse_args): Trim the configure.ac part of
	the arguments.
	Default @ARGV to `.', not find_configure_ac.

	Trace AC_CONFIG_SUBDIRS and schedule the subdirs for autoreconf'ing.
	* doc/autoconf.texi (autoreconf Invocation): Update.

2001-11-03  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	Don't look for aclocal flags if we already know aclocal is not
	used.

	Reported by Ezra Peisach.

2001-11-03  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* bin/autoreconf.in (&parse_args): Work only on the configure.ac
	passed on command line, defaulting to ./configure.ac if present.
	(&maybe_autoreconf, File::Find): Remove, unused.
	(&autoreconf): If autoconf is not used, don't try to trace.

2001-11-02  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* configure.ac: Bump to 2.52g.

2001-11-02  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	Don't run aclocal when aclocal.m4 is not from aclocal.
	From Ezra Peisach.
	Don't run libtoolize and gettextize if --install is not given.

2001-11-01  Paul Eggert  <eggert@twinsun.com>

	* lib/m4sugar/m4sh.m4 (AS_SHELL_SANITIZE): _AS_CR_PREPARE needs to
	be invoked before _AS_LINENO_PREPARE.
	(_AS_LINENO_PREPARE): Use as_cr_digits and as_cr_alnum rather
	than character ranges.

	* lib/m4sugar/m4sh.m4 (AS_SHELL_SANITIZE): Fix NLS before
	invoking AS_BASENAME.  Set the locale variables to 'C' if
	possible, as POSIX requires this to get the traditional
	behavior.
	* doc/autoconf.texi (Special Shell Variables): Describe the above.

2001-10-31  Paul Eggert  <eggert@twinsun.com>

	* lib/m4sugar/m4sh.m4 (_AS_LINENO_WORKS): Do not surround body
	with {}, as that triggers a bug in Bash 2.05.

	(_AS_LINENO_PREPARE): Use Sed rather than
	Awk.  Fix the sed prepass to work even if there are multiple
	instances of $LINENO on the same line.  Do not substitute for
	other variables like $LINENOT.  Do not check file dates; such a
	check is unreliable on sufficiently fast machines, and removing
	the check makes the code simpler and more reliable.  Check for
	output and chmod failures.

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Special Shell Variables): Document
	the above.

2001-10-31  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* tests/Makefile.am (atconfig): Remove this target, Automake
	handles it now.

2001-10-31  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* lib/autoconf/autotest.m4 (AC_CONFIG_TESTDIR): Do not
	AC_CONFIG_FILES(atlocal) as it means a file atlocal.in *must* be
	provided, while it is optional.
	* configure.ac: Adjust.

2001-10-26  Paul Eggert  <eggert@twinsun.com>

	* NEWS, README, configure.ac, lib/Autom4te/General.pm,
	  lib/Autom4te/Struct.pm:
	Require Perl 5.005_03 instead of just 5.005, as some tests fail
	with 5.005_02.

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Special Shell Variables): Document some
	more LINENO gotchas, particularly with respect to the Awk+Sed hack.

	* lib/m4sugar/m4sh.m4 (_AS_LINENO_WORKS): New macro.
	(_AS_LINENO_PREPARE): Use it instead of shell eval, since
	eval $LINENO is not portable in practice.

2001-10-22  Paul Eggert  <eggert@twinsun.com>

	* lib/autoconf/functions.m4 (AC_FUNC_STRERROR_R):
	Rename ac_cv_func_strerror_r_works to ac_cv_func_strerror_r_char_p,
	and rename HAVE_WORKING_STRERROR_R to STRERROR_R_CHAR_P, since
	POSIX decided to standardize on the int flavor of strerror_r.
	Always do char* test, as there's no reason not to.
	Assign to a char* var, to catch strerror_r that returns int*.

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Particular Functions):
	Document the above changes.  Also, document the fact that
	AC_FUNC_STRERROR_R defines HAVE_DECL_STRERROR_R.

	* NEWS: Mention HAVE_WORKING_STRERROR_R -> STRERROR_R_CHAR_P.

2001-10-20  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* tests/fortran.at (GNU Fortran 77): there.
	* doc/autoconf.texi (autoconf Invocation): Fix the example:
	AC_TRY_RUN is about compilation, not shell commands.
	(Test Programs): AC_TRY_RUN works as used to be advertised.

2001-09-27  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* lib/m4sugar/m4sh.m4 (AS_SHELL_SANITIZE): Fix bugs spotted by
	Raja R Harinath:
	Be sure to detect when $LINENO always returns the same value.
	Look for the original script, basename($0) is certainly not
	enough.
	Pass the CLI arguments to `$as_me.lineno'.

2001-09-25  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* lib/autotest/general.m4 (AT_INIT): Dump the whole config.log.

	to expr, by parenthesizing initial integers that might be negative.

	* doc/autoconf.texi (Particular Functions): AC_FUNC_GETPGRP

	to getpgrp.

	* lib/autoconf/functions.m4 (_AC_FUNC_GETPGRP_TEST): Remove.
	(AC_FUNC_GETPGRP): Don't bother with a runtime test.  Just check

	one line out...

	* tests/Makefile.am (package.m4): New.

	Fix bug reported by Paul Townsend on AIX 4.3.3.0 with CFLAGS=-O4
	or CFLAGS=-O5.  In that case, the linker has a relaxed view of
	fatal errors, and AC_CHECK_LIB causes it to include libraries even
	when they don't exist.

	version with the version used by fileutils 4.1, except use

	since version.m4 is now in m4sugar, but m4_acversion must not be
	classified as an Autoconf macro.

	Rather, pass autoconf_dir to m4.

	* lib/autotest/general.m4 (AT_INIT): Refer to `$as_me.log', not

	* doc/autoconf.texi (C Compiler Characteristics): Update

2001-08-11  Alexandre Duret-Lutz  <duret_g@epita.fr>

	* lib/autoconf/c.m4 (AC_C_BIGENDIAN): Guess endianness by grep'ing
	magic values from an object file when cross-compiling.
	Based on code by Guido Draheim <Guido.Draheim@gmx.de>.

2001-08-10  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* bin/autom4te.in (&handle_output): Don't use `grep' with side
	effects.
	Suggested by Russ Allbery.

2001-08-10  Ralf Corsepius  <corsepiu@faw.uni-ulm.de>

	* lib/autoconf/general.m4 (_AC_OUTPUT_SUBDIRS): Propagate the
	current $prefix to the sub-configures.

2001-08-09  Tim Van Holder  <tim.van.holder@pandora.be>

	* lib/autoconf/lang.m4: Ignore *.xSYM when looking for an executable
	extension (needed on BeOS).  Reported by Guido van Rossum.

2001-08-09  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* bin/autom4te.in ($icache): Load it only if older than autom4te.

2001-08-07  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	* lib/autotest/general.m4 (AT_INIT): All the `at-*' are to be
	removed.
	(at-setup-line): Huh?  Be a variable `at_setup_line', not a file.
	No need to remove the files before and after the each test, before
	each test and at the end of the suite is enough.
	Display only the children `times', not the shell's.
	If the test failed or was skipped, at-times is not available.

2001-08-07  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	Always produce testsuite.log, including when there are no
	failures.  This helps getting information on skipped tests, and
	duration of the tests.  Err, implement the latter btw.

	* lib/autotest/general.m4 (AT_INIT): Set up fd 6 for the log.
	Dump information on the first run of each test.
	(AT_CLEANUP): Create `at-times' containing the duration of the
	test group.

2001-08-07  Akim Demaille  <akim@epita.fr>

	The use of `dumpstat' revealed that `len' was used although it
	should not.  m4_text_wrap was using it, but in the Autoconf world
	where it is legal.  Hence (i) test M4sh in its own world, not
	Autoconf's, and (ii), ahem, fix the bug :)

	* lib/autotest/general.m4: Be sure the set good quotes, as tracing
	does not like `' instead of [].
	(AT_INIT): Forbid `^_?AT_'.
	And don't output such tokens.
	* tests/Makefile.am (CLEANFILES): Add `script', `script.s4g',
	`script.as', and `autom4te.cache'.
	Remove `empty' and `macro' which are no longer used.
	* tests/atspecific.m4 (AT_CHECK_M4SUGAR, AT_CHECK_M4SH): New.
	* tests/m4sugar.at: Use it.

	Don't rely on M4sugar outputting the patterns in files, since we

	files.
