In theory a good solution, IMHO, if not the most correct one, however, I do not run progressive, and noone in the team (that I know of) does, so it's unmaintainable for me. Hence I rather think twice before I stable autoconf on ppc-macos. -- Fabian Groffen Gentoo for Mac OS X Project -- Interim Lead -- gentoo-osx@g.o mailing list
