autoconf version error?
Many projects lately have been requiring a dependency on autoconf of 2.5 or
higher. Debian distributes a newer version than this but hides it behind a
wrapper script. If you --version this wrapper script, it replies with the
old 2.13 version. This is bad. The projects are just looking at that and
failing. I had to remove all the scripts and just symlink the autoconf2.50
and autoheader files to the script names and everything is fine. I'm
guessing this is a script error on the offending projects side but i'm not
sure as a lot of projects have been giving this error.
