don't consider duplicate macros a fatal error (536 bytes, patch)

Description Havoc Pennington 2001-09-10 21:56:57 UTC
aclocal keeps any package that installs .m4 macros from working properly 
if I put build it in two separate prefixes, one of which is the 
standard aclocal build location.

This is because even if I pass "-I /prefix/share/aclocal" when using 
aclocal in "/prefix", aclocal has a fatal error if it finds duplicate
macros. There is no reason this error should be fatal.

Will attach Owen's patch for this.

FYI: the aclocal that comes with automake 1.5 no longer
generates this error.  There were too many complaints and
problems associated with it, so we took it out.

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2001-11-28 18:39:33 UTC
Perfect, 1.5 is in rawhide so I guess the bug is closed.
