Subject: [gentoo-dev] autotools.eclass: dropping of M4DIR and explicit GNU m4 requirement
Date: Wed, 14 Dec 2011 18:34:14
1 first up, i can't find anyone using M4DIR anymore (has been deprecated for a
2 while at this point), so i'm dropping it wrt AT_M4DIR.
4 next, i'm explicitly noting GNU m4 as a requirement in the autotools.eclass.
5 i believe this has always been de-facto case (we certainly use non-POSIX flags
6 like -I/--include), and i wanted to use a few more features without having to
7 worry about portability. plus, the autoconf website says GNU m4 is required
8 for autoconf.
