automake requires `AM_CONFIG_HEADER', not `AC_CONFIG_HEADER'
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:04:16 EDT
Description of problem, how reproducible & Steps to Reproduce:
I still get the error message "automake requires `AM_CONFIG_HEADER',
not `AC_CONFIG_HEADER'" at recompiling grub (more exactly is at
autoconf/automake) at some (older?) systems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Well, there's an easy solution to solve it:
--- grub-0.94/configure.ac 2004-03-14 00:56:36.000000000 +0100
+++ grub-0.94/configure.ac.automake 2004-03-14 00:57:28.000000000 +0100

Please apply that simple patch, thanks :)
This works here and changing it is likely to break different version
of auto*. What versions of autoconf/automake do you have?
Oh sorry, I saw, my version of auto* are not the latest one.
But in "The GNU configure and build system" by Ian Lance Taylor, I
noticed, that "If you are not using automake, use `AC_CONFIG_HEADER'
rather than `AM_CONFIG_HEADER'". So we use automake, do we?
I also saw, that the newer versions of autoconf/automake are more
loyal than the older ones, so AM should (only should) work.
Sorry again for my older auto* - it's your turn, I didn't test that
patch with the latest autoconf/automake, whether it really works.
Yes, grub uses automake as well
