Most... if I also use -a -c
touch NEWS AUTHORS ChangeLog
cp /usr/share/automake/missing .
automake -a -c
automake: configure.in: installing `./depcomp'
automake: src/thread/Makefile.am: Assembler source seen but `ASFLAGS' not
defined in `configure.in'
make: *** [build-stamp] Error 1
So automake -c installs depcomp? Why is that not mentioned in the manpage?
Oh --help lists it...
# Older versions of Linux require an asm clone() implementation
THREAD_ASM_SRC = clone.S
Thats not really needed and of course not used for debian. Can I force
automake to ignore this without changing the source?
BTW am I the only one with access to the sdl1.2 source???
