Autoconf 2.57g is released

From: Akim Demaille
Subject: Autoconf 2.57g is released
Date: Fri, 24 Oct 2003 09:59:59 +0200
User-agent: Gnus/5.1002 (Gnus v5.10.2) Emacs/21.3 (gnu/linux)

This is our candidate release for Autoconf 2.58.  We plan to release
it soon, so that Automake 1.8 can be released, hence Libtool 1.6, so
that GNU M4 2.0 can be shipped, enabling Autoconf 2.60 ;)

Unless problems are found next week, 2.58 should be released by the
end of the month.  Please, test it thoroughly.

        Akim, Alexandre, Jim, Paul, and Tom.

Here are the compressed sources:   (1.2MB)  (907KB)

* Major changes in Autoconf 2.57g                       -*- outline -*-

** autoreconf and auxiliary directory
  Autoreconf creates the auxiliary directory if needed.  This is
  especially useful for initial "bootstrapping" of fresh CVS checkouts.

  Use this macro to declare the directory for local m4 macros for aclocal.

** New macros

  No longer includes twice the same file in LIBOBJS if invoked
  multiple times.

        -mGLOB_options_string stuff for Intel ifc, which can cause
        _AC_FC_LIBRARY_LDFLAGS to fail.  Use (faster) case for
        pattern-matching instead of grep.

2003-10-08  Steven G. Johnson  <address@hidden>

        cache variable instead of $G77 to decide whether to include -O2,

        * lib/autoconf/fortran.m4 (AC_PROG_FC): Reverse the order of the
        arguments so that it can be used with syntax identical to
        AC_PROG_F77, and so that we can more easily decide to

        proves troublesome.

2003-10-03  Akim Demaille  <address@hidden>

        * Quotation and formatting changes.
        (EMACS): Don't set it if it is not recent enough to support
        From Eric Sunshine.

2003-10-02  Akim Demaille  <address@hidden>

        * bin/ (&scan_file): Skip C++ comments.
