Description Enrico Scholz 2001-11-13 17:55:55 UTC
Description of Problem:

Calling "autoreconf -i" produces the warning

| autoreconf: --add-missing: command not found

under some circumstances. This is caused because of a missing definition of
`automake' somewhere in /usr/bin/autoreconf.

Additionally, `autoreconf' produces lots of warnings regarding obsolete
options.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

autoconf-2.52-3


How Reproducible:

everytime


Steps to Reproduce:
1. cat <<EOF >configure.ac 
AC_INIT(foo, 0, X)
AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE(foo, 0)

AC_CONFIG_FILES(Makefile)
AC_OUTPUT
EOF

2. touch Makefile.am
3. autoreconf -i

Actual Results:

/usr/bin/autoreconf: --add-missing: command not found
autoconf: warning: -A is obsolete, use --include
autoconf: warning: -l is obsolete, use --include
autoconf: warning: -A is obsolete, use --include
autoconf: warning: -l is obsolete, use --include


Expected Results:

no warnings/errors

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2001-12-21 05:45:32 UTC
Seems this was a bug in 2.52d. I can't reproduce it in 2.52f, which is in
autoconf-2.52-5.
