Log Message:
Update to 1.11.5:

Bugs fixed in 1.11.5:

* Bugs introduced by 1.11.3:

  - Vala files with '.vapi' extension are now recognized and handled
    correctly again.  See automake bug#11222.

  - Vala support work again for projects that contain some program
    built from '.vala' (and possibly '.c') sources and some other
    program built from '.c' sources *only*.  See automake bug#11229.

New in 1.11.4:

* WARNING: Future backward-incompatibilities!

  - The support for the "obscure" multilib feature has been deprecated,
    and will be moved out of the automake core in the next major Automake
    release (1.12).

  - The support for ".log -> .html" conversion and the check-html and
    recheck-html targets will be removed in the next major Automake
    release (1.12).

  - The obsolescent AM_WITH_REGEX  macro has been deprecated (since the
    GNU rx library has been decommissioned), and will be removed in the
    next major Automake release (1.12).

  - The `lzma' compression format for distribution archives has been
    deprecated in favor of `xz' and `lzip', and will be removed in the
    next major Automake release (1.12).

  - The `--acdir' option of aclocal is deprecated, and will probably be
    removed in the next major Automake release (1.12).

  - 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 (1.12).

  - The Automake support for automatic de-ANSI-fication will be removed
    in the next major Automake release (1.12).

  - Starting from the next Automake release (1.12), warnings in the
    `extra-portability' category will be enabled by `-Wall' (right now,
    one has to use `-Wextra-portability' explicitly).

* Miscellaneous changes:

  - The 'ar-lib' script now ignores the "s" (symbol index) and "S" (no
    symbol index) modifiers as well as the "s" action, as the symbol index
    is created unconditionally by Microsoft lib.  Also, the "q" (quick)
    action is now a synonym for "r" (replace).  Also, the script has been
    ignoring the "v" (verbose) modifier already since Automake 1.11.3.

  - When the 'compile' script is used to wrap MSVC, it now accepts an
    optional space between the -I, -L and -l options and their respective
    arguments, for better POSIX compliance.

  - There is an initial, experimental support for automatic dependency
    tracking with tcc (the Tiny C Compiler).  Its associated depmode is
    currently recognized as "icc" (but this and other details are likely
    to change in future versions).

  - Automatic dependency tracking now works also with the IBM XL C/C++
    compilers, thanks to the new new depmode 'xlc'.

Bugs fixed in 1.11.4:

* Bugs introduced by 1.11.2:

  - A definition of 'noinst_PYTHON' before 'python_PYTHON' (or similar)
    don't cause spurious failures upon "make install" anymore.

  - The user can now instruct the 'uninstall-info' rule not to update
    the '${infodir}/dir' file by exporting the environment variable
    'AM_UPDATE_INFO_DIR' to the value "no".  This is done for consistency
    with how the 'install-info' rule operates since automake 1.11.2.

* Long-standing bugs:

  - It is now possible for a foo_SOURCES variable to hold Vala sources
    together with C header files, as well as with sources and headers for
    other supported languages (e.g., C++).  Previously, only mixing C and
    Vala sources was supported.

  - If "aclocal --install" is used, and the first directory specified with
    '-I' is non-existent, aclocal will now create it before trying to copy
    files in it.

  - An empty declaration of a "foo_PRIMARY" don't cause anymore the
    generated install rules to create an empty $(foodir) directory;
    for example, if contains something like:

      pkglibexec_SCRIPTS =
      if FALSE
      pkglibexec_SCRIPTS +=

    the $(pkglibexec) directory will not be created upon "make install".
