[notting@wierzbowski: ~/prog/rpm/build/xscreensaver-4.00]$ autoconf
configure.in:2311: /usr/bin/m4: ERROR: Recursion limit of 1024 exceeded, use
-L<N> to change it
Meanwhile, configure is now 0 bytes in length. :(
What files do you need me to post?
Reproduced with autoconf-2.50 and above. Still my first guess is that it could
be a problem with the configure.in.
Typically this error means you have a quoting problem in
configure.in (or aclocal.m4). Finding these isn't always easy :-(
reproduced with 2.53 too
moved to autoconf253 component
This problem no longer seems to occur with xscreensaver-4.05.
