Subject: [gentoo-dev] autoconf now supports multislots
Date: Wed, 17 Apr 2013 18:31:31
1 for people who work with projects that require specific versions of autoconf
2 and nothing else (like ==2.64), i've long left older versions in the tree so
3 people could downgrade on the fly. this isn't so bad as you can do:
4 emerge -bk ~autoconf-2.64
5 <use it>
6 emerge -bk autoconf
8 but i'm super lazy, so even this manual step is annoying. as such, i've added
9 USE=multislot support to autoconf (just like it is with binutils & gcc).
11 now you can install multiple versions in parallel and run:
12 WANT_AUTOCONF=2.64 autoconf
13 or more specifically:
14 autoconf-2.64
15 without affecting the default `autoconf`.
17 the default is, of course, unchanged.
