Subject [PATCH] build/buildcheck.sh: Do not accept autoconf 2.52f or greater
Date Fri, 08 Feb 2002 22:25:30 GMT
Here's a patch to build/buildcheck.sh to not accept autoconf 2.52X where X
is not {"",a,b,c,d} to build with, since newer versions of autoconf set a
bogus value for apr_builddir.  In my autoconf 2.52f build of APR, I get
apr_builddir=../ which causes the compile to fail in file_io/unix since it
can't find libtool using the relative path in a second level directory.

I tested this patch on Solaris and Linux.

Hopefully, this will help people stop wondering why their CVS APRs build
fail with newer autoconf's.

The only issue with this patch is that the last sed uses & to match the
last [a-z] in the autoconf version.  This works on Linux and Solaris and IRIX,
but don't know about other OSes.

This script also uses 3 spaces per indent, which I didn't fix in this patch
since it would clutter it.

Best,
Blair
