Description of problem:
If one uses 'configure.ac' rather than the old name 'configure.in', libtoolize
will not find the correct CONFIG_AUX_DIR.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Write a configure.ac with AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR(somedir)
3.ls and ls somedir
Actual Results: ltmain.sh has been put in . instead of in 'somedir'
Expected Results: ltmain.sh should have been put in CONFIG_AUX_DIR 'somedir'
The bug is caused by using the hardcoded name 'confiure.in' instead of
$configure_ac in libtoolize.
The bug has been fix in libtools CVS, see:
for the actual patch.
PS. this problem is in RH7.3 and earlier too.
Thanks for the report.
Should be fixed in libtool-1.4.2-11.
