Subject: aclocal.m4 for dpkg
I am still reading the docs of autconf and automake, so its
possible that I am doing something stupid by running aclocal. However, I
note that when I do so, the macros defined in the $(SRC_ROOT)/automake
directory get placed into configure.in, and because of this ./configure
dies with a syntax error (on AIX and Linux). I think the automake macros
arent syntactically correct, but I havent yet pinpointed what the problem
My question though has to do with the aclocal.m4 file that is
distributed in the source deb. Why would this be different from the one I
get when I run aclocal. Should I not be running aclocal? Why not?
