 Log Message:
 Update to 1.12.3:
 New in 1.12.3:
 * WARNING: Future backward-incompatibilities!
   - Future versions of Automake will likely drop support for the
     long-deprecated '' name for the Autoconf input file.
     You are advised to use the recommended name '' instead.
   - The long-obsolete (since automake 1.10) AM_PROG_MKDIR m4 macro will
     be removed in Automake 1.13.  The $(mkdir_p) make variable and the
     @mkdir_p@ substitution will still remain available (as aliases of
     $(MKDIR_P)) for the moment, for better backward compatibility.
   - Autoconf 2.65 or later will be required by the next major Automake
     version (1.13).  Until now, Automake has required Autoconf version
     2.62 or later.
   - Starting from the next major Automake version (1.13), the rules
     to build pdf, ps and dvi output from Texinfo input will use the
     '--build-dir' option by default.  Since such an option was only
     introduced in Texinfo 4.9, this means that Makefiles generated by
     future Automake versions will require at least that version of
   - Starting from the next major Automake version (1.13), the parallel
     testsuite harness (previously only enabled by the 'parallel-tests'
     option) will become the default one; the older serial testsuite
     harness will still be available through the use of the 'serial-tests'
   - The following long-obsolete m4 macros will be removed in the
     next major Automake version (1.13):
       AM_PROG_CC_STDC:    superseded by AC_PROG_CC since October 2002
       fp_PROG_CC_STDC:    broken alias for AM_PROG_CC_STDC
       fp_WITH_DMALLOC:    old alias for AM_WITH_DMALLOC
       AM_CONFIG_HEADER:   superseded by AC_CONFIG_HEADERS since July 2002
       ud_PATH_LISPDIR:    old alias for AM_PATH_LISPDIR
       ud_GNU_GETTEXT:     old alias for AM_GNU_GETTEXT
       gm_PROG_LIBTOOL:    old alias for AC_PROG_LIBTOOL
       fp_C_PROTOTYPES:    old alias for AM_C_PROTOTYPES (which was part
                           of the now-removed automatic de-ANSI-fication
                           support of Automake)
   - All the "old alias" macros in 'm4/obsolete.m4' will be removed in
     the next major Automake version (1.13).
   - Support for the two- and three-arguments invocation forms of the
     AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE macro is deprecated, and will be removed in the
     next major Automake version (1.13).
   - The '--acdir' option of aclocal is deprecated, and will probably
     be removed in the next major Automake release (1.13).  You should
     use the options '--automake-acdir' and '--system-acdir' instead
     (which have been introduced in Automake 1.11.2).
   - The exact order in which the directories in the aclocal macro
     search path are looked up is probably going to be changed in the
     next Automake release (1.13).
   - The 'missing' script will not try anymore to update the timestamp
     of out-of-date files that require a maintainer-specific tool to be
     remade, in case the user lacks such a tool (or has a too-old version
     of it).  In fact, starting from Automake 1.13, all it'll do will be
     giving more useful warnings than a bare "command not found" from a
     make recipe would.
 * Miscellaneous changes:
   - The '.m4' files provided by Automake does not define serial numbers
     anymore.  This should cause no difference in the behaviour of aclocal
   - Some testsuite weaknesses and spurious failures have been fixed.
   - There is initial support for automatic dependency tracking with the
     Portland Group C/C++ compilers, thanks to the new new depmode 'pgcc'.
 Bugs fixed in 1.12.3:
 * Long-standing bugs:
   - Instead of renaming only self-references of files (typically for
     #lines), ylwrap now also renames references to the other generated
     files.  This fixes support for GLR and C++ parsers from Bison (PR
     automake/491 and automake bug#7648): 'parser.c' now properly
     #includes 'parser.h' instead of ''.
   - Generated files unknown to ylwrap are now preserved.  This fixes
     C++ support for Bison (automake bug#7648): location.hh and the
     like are no longer discarded.
