pkgsrc/devel/autoconf: Makefile distinfo
Update to 2.61:
* Major changes in Autoconf 2.61 (2006-11-17)
** New macros AC_C_FLEXIBLE_ARRAY_MEMBER, AC_C_VARARRAYS.
** AC_ARG_ENABLE and AC_ARG_WITH now allow '.' in feature and package names.
* Major changes in Autoconf 2.60b (2006-10-22)
Autoconf-generated shell scripts no longer export BIN_SH, due to
configuration hassles with this. Installers who need BIN_SH in
their environment should set it before invoking 'configure' and
'make'. As far as we know, this affects only Unixware installations.
** Obsolescent macros
The documentation now says that the following macros are obsolescent,
as they are superseded by Gnulib:
AC_FUNC_FNMATCH AC_FUNC_FNMATCH_GNU AC_FUNC_GETLOADVG AC_REPLACE_FNMATCH
New programs should use the Gnulib counterparts of these macros.
We have no current plans to remove them from Autoconf.
** AC_COMPUTE_INT no longer caches or reports results.
** AC_CHECK_DECL now also works with aggregate objects.
** AC_USE_SYSTEM_EXTENSIONS now defines _TANDEM_SOURCE for NonStop platforms.
** GNU M4 1.4.7 or later is now recommended.
New M4sugar macro, which is more secure than the POSIX M4 maketemp.
Now an alias for m4_mkstemp.
* Major changes in Autoconf 2.60a (2006-08-25)
** GNU M4 1.4.6 or later is now recommended.
** The check for C99 now tests for varargs macros, as documented.
It also tests that the preprocessor supports 64-bit integers.
** Autoconf now uses constructs like "#ifdef HAVE_STDLIB_H" rather than
"#if HAVE_STDLIB_H", so that it now works with "gcc -Wundef -Werror".
** The functionality of the undocumented _AC_COMPUTE_INT is now provided
by a public and documented macro, AC_COMPUTE_INT. The parameters to the
two macros are different, so autoupdate will not change the old private name
to the new one. _AC_COMPUTE_INT may be removed in a future release.
** AC_TYPE_LONG_LONG_INT and AC_TYPE_UNSIGNED_LONG_LONG_INT now require
that long long types be at least 64 bits wide, as C99 and tradition
requires. Formerly, they accepted implementations of any width.
