This looks reasonable: Since a project can use both gcc and g++ and since the
desired warning options for gcc and g++ are likely different, it's good to
have different macros, that set different variables (WARN_CFLAGS vs.
Going further, there is no real benefit of having manywarnings-cxx a different
module. Since an m4 macro that is not invoked does not contribute to the size
nor the execution time of the 'configure' script, I would just add the two
new macros gl_MANYWARN_ALL_GXX and gl_CXX_WARN_ADD - in manywarnings.m4
and warnings.m4, respectively.
However, two things are important:
- That the name of the *_cv_* variables are different in the C++ macro
than in the C macro.
- That you invoke AC_LANG_PUSH([C++]) at the beginning and AC_LANG_POP([C++])
at the end of the macro, so that AC_LANG_SOURCE invocations do the right
Please also fix the AC_REQUIRE([gl_UNKNOWN_
in gl_WARN_ADD and gl_CXX_WARN_ADD. Since this macro expands to different
code after AC_LANG_PUSH([C++]) than after AC_LANG_PUSH([C]), it is wrong
to just AC_REQUIRE it. Needs to be a bit more intelligent.
Look at how _AC_LANG_ABBREV and _AC_LANG_PREFIX can be used. Maybe libtool.m4,
which also plays around with AC_LANG, gives you some hint about this.
