[Bug-AUCTeX] 2010-05-24; autogen.sh from CVS fails with 'redirection une

From: David Engster
Subject: [Bug-AUCTeX] 2010-05-24; autogen.sh from CVS fails with 'redirection unexpected'
Date: Mon, 24 May 2010 23:00:53 +0200
User-agent: Gnus/5.110011 (No Gnus v0.11) Emacs/23.2 (gnu/linux)

The autogen.sh from a current CVS checkout fails:

echo @set VERSION 2010-05-24�che <address@hidden> >version.texi
/bin/sh: Syntax error: redirection unexpected
make: *** [version.texi] Error 2
Error running make in doc

The reason for this is that I'm working in a UTF-8 environment, but the
ChangeLog file has iso-8859-1 encoding. Due to the special characters
in the committer's name the sed-script fails.

One could solve this issue by setting LANG when calling sed, for example:

    AUCTEXDATE=`LANG=en_US.iso88591 sed -n '1s/^\([-0-9][-0-9]*\).*/\1/p' 

But maybe there's a better solution?
