Proposed Autoconf 2.50 path
A new package, autoconf2.13, has now been uploaded. This package
provides a compatibility environment for Autoconf 2.13. Packages
that really need this older version of Autoconf can use it by
replacing `autoconf' invocations by `autoconf2.13', and so on.
I propose to file a bug report on every package that
Build-Depends: on autoconf that does not compile properly with
Autoconf 2.50, saying that it either be fixed or modified to use
Question - how can I determine which packages do not compile
properly with Autoconf 2.50? Is there a machine I can use to do
this? (I don't have good-enough network connectivity to do it
here.) Is the alternative of simply filing a bug on *every*
package that Build-Depends: on autoconf acceptable?
