bug#11637: [PATCH] build: use configure.ac, not configure.in, as Autocon


From: Stefano Lattarini
Subject: bug#11637: [PATCH] build: use configure.ac, not configure.in, as Autoconf input
Date: Wed, 6 Jun 2012 13:30:29 +0200

The Autoconf documentation has been advising for years to prefer
'configure.in' over 'configure.ac', and future version of Autoconf
will start issuing runtime warnings if 'configure.in' is still used.
See commit 'v2.69-4-g560f16b' of 2012-05-06, "general: deprecate
'configure.in' as autoconf input" in the Autoconf git repository).
