Re: autoconf weirdness
I am trying to update configure in shellutils-2.0.11 with
the woody version of autoconf.
First I had to rename instances of AC_SHELL_IFELSE to AS_IF.
However, now I get this weird first few lines:
--- cut ---
# Guess values for system-dependent variables and create Makefiles.
# Generated by GNU Autoconf 2.53.
# Copyright 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002

' ECHO_T=' ' ;;
*c*,* ) ECHO_N=-n ECHO_C= ECHO_T= ;;
*) ECHO_N= ECHO_C='\c' ECHO_T= ;;
I once got this error message when I defined a macro before the use of
AC_INIT. autoconf2.13 didn't complain, but autoconf2.5x produced the
piece of code shown above.
