Re: Passing default configure parameters in subpackage

Hi!

Sorry for the delayed reply. I appended to $ac_configure_args and it
now works. I did it by adding something like
ac_configure_args="$ac_configure_args --with-your-options" somewhere
in configure.ac. For those who will be reading this post in the
future, just google $ac_configure_args for more examples.

Thanks.
