For those of you interested in the
Re: [Bug-gnulib] AC_PROG_YACC
thread, be advised that I have opened a bug report for FreeBSD to track
The NetBSD -current sources have already resolved this problem and will
hopefully surface the change in their NetBSD 2.0 release.
I have also sent e-mail to the OpenBSD bugs mailing list, but I don't
have a tracking number back for them as yet.
All that said, the test Makefile submitted for this report shows that
a command like this one:
echo "Hello,"; false; echo "World"
will fail on most of the platforms I had available for testing:
Command AIX4.3 AIX5.1 FreeBSD5.x NetBSD1.6.x OpenBSD3.x Solaris9
/usr/bin/make fail fail fail fail fail n/a
GNUmake pass pass pass pass pass pass
/usr/ccs/bin/make n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a fail
/usr/xpg4/bin/make n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a fail
I therefore suggest that any automake generated Makefile command scripts
that might fail will need to use a combination of the && and || syntax
to ensure that the make command does not fail in the middle of such
