Changelog for automake-1.16.1-lp150.88.1.noarch.rpm :

* Tue Jun 19 2018 schwabAATTsuse.de- Add pkgconfig(gobject-2.0) to BuildRequires for testsuite
* Fri May 18 2018 pthAATTsuse.de- Remove non-existing compress from BuildRequires.
* Fri May 18 2018 pthAATTsuse.de- Add gettext-tools, pkg-config. vala dejagnu, makeinfo, python and zip as BuildRequires for automake-testsuite to make testsuite complete and enable more tests.
* Thu May 10 2018 schwabAATTsuse.de- automake-SuSE.patch: fix variable syntax
* Wed Mar 21 2018 pthAATTsuse.de- Update to 1.16.1. Changes since 1.15.1: - \'install-sh\' now ensures that nobody can cross privilege boundaries by pre-creating symlink on the directory inside \"/tmp\". - \'automake\' does not depend on the \'none\' subroutine of the List::Util module anymore to support older Perl version. (automake bug#30631) - A regression in AM_PYTHON_PATH causing the rejection of non literal minimum version parameter hasn\'t been fixed. (automake bug#30616)
* Miscellaneous changes - When subdir-objects is in effect, Automake will now construct shorter object file names when no programs and libraries name clashes are encountered. This should make the discouraged use of \'foo_SHORTNAME\' unnecessary in many cases.
* Bugs fixed: - Automatic dependency tracking has been fixed to work also when the \'subdir-object\' option is used and some \'foo_SOURCES\' definition contains unexpanded references to make variables, as in, e.g.: a_src = sources/libs/aaa b_src = sources/bbb foo_SOURCES = $(a_src)/bar.c $(b_src)/baz.c With such a setup, the created makefile fragment containing dependency tracking information will be correctly placed under the directories named \'sources/libs/aaa/.deps\' and \'sources/bbb/.deps\', rather than mistakenly under directories named (literally!) \'$(src_a)/.deps\' and \'$(src_b)/.deps\' (this was the first part of automake bug#13928). Notice that in order to fix this bug we had to slightly change the semantics of how config.status bootstraps the makefile fragments required for the dependency tracking to work: rather than attempting to parse the Makefiles via grep and sed trickeries only, we actually invoke \'make\' on a slightly preprocessed version of those Makefiles, using a private target that is only meant to bootstrap the required makefile fragments. - The \'subdir-object\' option no longer causes object files corresponding to source files specified with an explicit \'$(srcdir)\' component to be placed in the source tree rather than in the build tree. For example, if Makefile.am contains: AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS = subdir-objects foo_SOURCES = $(srcdir)/foo.c $(srcdir)/s/bar.c $(top_srcdir)/baz.c then \"make all\" will create \'foo.o\' and \'s/bar.o\' in $(builddir) rather than in $(srcdir), and will create \'baz.o\' in $(top_builddir) rather than in $(top_srcdir). This was the second part of automake bug#13928. - Installed \'aclocal\' m4 macros can now accept installation directories containing \'AATT\' characters (automake bug#20903) - \"./configure && make dist\" no longer fails when a distributed file depends on one from BUILT_SOURCES. - When combining AC_LIBOBJ or AC_FUNC_ALLOCA with the \"--disable-dependency-tracking\" configure option in an out of source build, the build sub-directory defined by AC_CONFIG_LIBOBJ_DIR is now properly created. (automake bug#27781) - The time printed by \'mdate-sh\' is now using the UTC time zone to support the reproducible build effort. (automake bug#20314) - The elisp byte-compilation rule now uses byte-compile-dest-file-function, rather than byte-compile-dest-file, which was obsoleted in 2009. We expect that Emacs-26 will continue to support the old function, but will complain loudly, and that Emacs-27 will remove support for it altogether.- Build serially as a missing dependency makes parallel builds fail.- Update the list of licenses.
* Sun Feb 04 2018 mailAATTbernhard-voelker.de- Avoid bashisms in test-driver:
* 0001-correct-parameter-parsing-in-test-driver-script.patch Use test\'s = operator instead of ==; use \'[\' instead of \'[[\'. This avoids \'make check\' failures of distribution tarballs (built on openSUSE) on platforms not supporting bashisms, e.g. NetBSD-7.1.
* Fri Oct 20 2017 jayvdbAATTgmail.com- Add missing BuildRequires perl(Thread::Queue)
* Tue Jun 20 2017 mpluskalAATTsuse.com- Update to version 1.15.1:
* The code has been adapted to remove a warning present since Perl 5.22 stating that \"Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated\". This warning has become an hard error in Perl 5.26
* The generated Makefiles do not rely on the obsolescent GZIP environment variable which was used for passing arguments to \'gzip\'. Compatibility with old versions has been preserved.
* Miscellaneous changes:- Drop no longer needed patches:
* automake-perl-5.22.patch
* automake-fix-tests-gzip.patch- Add keyring- Small spec file cleanup
* Fri Feb 10 2017 bgAATTsuse.com- use vendor suse instead of IBM on s390x
* Sun Jun 26 2016 mpluskalAATTsuse.com- Fix tests with gzip-1.7 and later:
* automake-fix-tests-gzip.patch
* Tue Jun 14 2016 Thomas.BlumeAATTsuse.com- add 0001-correct-parameter-parsing-in-test-driver-script.patch make parameter parsing of test driver script matching the help text
* Tue Sep 01 2015 dimstarAATTopensuse.org- Add automake-perl-5.22.patch: Fix test suite with perl 5.22 by silencing some warnings.
* Sun May 17 2015 meissnerAATTsuse.com- move delete of info file to preun section
* Tue Feb 10 2015 pthAATTsuse.de- Update to 1.15: New in 1.15:
* Improvements and refactorings in the install-sh script: - It has been modernized, and now makes the following assumptions
* unconditionally
*: (1) a working \'dirname\' program is available; (2) the ${var:-value} shell parameters substitution works; (3) the \"set -f\" and \"set +f\" shell commands work, and, respectively, disable and enable shell globbing. - The script implements stricter error checking, and now it complains and bails out if any of the following expectations is not met: (1) the options -d and -t are never used together; (2) the argument passed to option -t is a directory; (3) if there are two or more SOURCEFILE arguments, the DESTINATION argument must be a directory.
* Automake-generated testsuites: - The default test-driver used by the Automake-generates testsuites now appends the result and exit status of each \"plain\" test to the associated log file (automake bug#11814). - The perl implementation of the TAP testsuite driver is no longer installed in the Automake\'s scripts directory, and is instead just distributed as a \"contrib\" addition. There should be no reason to use this implementation anyway in real packages, since the awk+shell implementation of the TAP driver (which is documented in the manual) is more portable and has feature parity with the perl implementation. - The rule generating \'test-suite.log\' no longer risk incurring in an extra useless \"make all\" recursive invocation in some corner cases (automake bug#16302).
* Distribution: - Automake bug#18286: \"make distcheck\" could sometimes fail to detect files missing from the distribution tarball, especially in those cases where both the generated files and their dependencies are explicitly in $(srcdir). An important example of this are
*generated
* makefile fragments included at Automake time in Makefile.am; e.g.: ... $(srcdir)/fragment.am: $(srcdir)/data.txt $(srcdir)/preproc.sh cd $(srcdir) && $(SHELL) preproc.sh fragment.am include $(srcdir)/fragment.am ... If the use forgot to add data.txt and/or preproc.sh in the distribution tarball, \"make distcheck\" would have erroneously succeeded! This issue is now fixed. - As a consequence of the previous change, \"make distcheck\" will run using \'$(distdir)/_build/sub\' as the build directory, rather than simply \'$(distdir)/_build\' (as it was the case for Automake 1.14 and earlier). Consequently, the \'./configure\' and \'make\' invocations issued by the distcheck recipe now have $(srcdir) equal to \'../..\', rather than to just \'..\'. Dependent and similar variables (e.g., \'$(top_srcdir)\') are also changed accordingly. Thus, Makefiles that made assumptions about the exact values of the build and source directories used by \"make distcheck\" will have to be adjusted. Notice that making such assumptions was a bad and unsupported practice anyway, since the exact locations of those directories should be considered implementation details, and we reserve the right to change them at any time.
* Miscellaneous bugs fixed: - The expansion of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE ends once again with a trailing newline (bug#16841). Regression introduced in Automake 1.14. - We no longer risk to use \'$ac_aux_dir\' before it\'s defined (see automake bug#15981). Bug introduced in Automake 1.14. - The code used to detect whether the currently used make is GNU make or not (relying on the private macro \'am__is_gnu_make\') no longer risks causing \"Arg list too long\" for projects using automatic dependency tracking and having a ton of source files (bug#18744). - Automake tries to offer a more deterministic output for generated Makefiles, in the face of the newly-introduced randomization for hash keys order in Perl 5.18. - In older Automake versions, if a user defined one single Makefile fragment (say \'foo.am\') to be included via Automake includes in his main Makefile.am, and defined a custom make rule to generate that file from other data, Automake used to spuriously complain with some message like \"... overrides Automake target \'$(srcdir)/foo.am\". This bug is now fixed. - The user can now extend the special .PRECIOUS target, the same way he could already do with the .MAKE .and .PHONY targets. - Some confusing typos have been fixed in the manual and in few warning messages (automake bug#16827 and bug#16997).- Remove automake-fix-ac_aux_dir-used-before-initialized.patch as the change is incorporated now.- Refresh automake-SuSE.patch and automake-require_file.patch so that they apply cleanly.
* Mon Oct 06 2014 gberAATTopensuse.org- Add automake-fix-ac_aux_dir-used-before-initialized.patch in to fix the use of $ac_aux_dir before being initialized
* Mon Aug 25 2014 pthAATTsuse.de- Explicitely pass the directory name to setup so that the testsuite can run.
* Wed Feb 05 2014 jengelhAATTinai.de- Update to new upstream release 1.14.1
* The \'compile\' script is now unconditionally required for all packages that perform C compilation
* The AM_PROG_CC_C_O macro can still be called, albeit that should no longer be necessary.
* The special Automake-time substitutions \'%reldir%\' and \'%canon_reldir%\' (and their short versions, \'%D%\' and \'%C%\' respectively) can now be used in an included Makefile fragment. The former is substituted with the relative directory of the included fragment (compared to the top-level including Makefile), and the latter with the canonicalized version of the same relative directory.
* The \'shar\' and \'compress\' distribution formats are deprecated
* Tue Oct 29 2013 fcrozatAATTsuse.com- Add expect as BuildRequires/Requires for automake-testsuite.
* Fri Aug 16 2013 andreas.stiegerAATTgmx.de- fix tests on factory automake-1.13.4-fix-primary-prefix-invalid-couples-test.patch
* Mon Jun 17 2013 pthAATTsuse.de- Update to 1.13.4: - Fix a minor regression introduced in Automake 1.13.3: when two or more user-defined suffix rules were present in a single Makefile.am, automake would needlessly include definition of some make variables related to C compilation in the generated Makefile.in (bug#14560).- Adapt automake-SuSE.patch to changed config.guess.
* Wed Jun 12 2013 pthAATTsuse.de- Update to 1.13.3:
* Documentation fixes: - The documentation no longer mistakenly reports that the obsolete \'AM_MKDIR_PROG_P\' macro and \'$(mkdir_p)\' make variable are going to be removed in Automake 2.0.
* Bugs fixed: - Byte-compilation of Emacs lisp files could fail spuriously on Solaris, when /bin/ksh or /usr/xpg4/bin/sh were used as shell. - If the same user-defined suffixes were transformed into different Automake-known suffixes in different Makefile.am files in the same project, automake could get confused and generate inconsistent Makefiles (automake bug#14441). For example, if \'Makefile.am\' contained a \".ext.cc:\" suffix rule, and \'sub/Makefile.am\' contained a \".ext.c:\" suffix rule, automake would have mistakenly placed into \'Makefile.in\' rules to compile \"
*.c\" files into object files, and into \'sub/Makefile.in\' rules to compile \"
*.cc\" files into object files --- rather than the other way around. This is now fixed. - Several spurious failures have been fixed (they hit especially MinGW/MSYS builds). See automake bugs #14493, #14494, #14495, [#14498], #14499, #14500, #14501, #14517 and #14528. - Some other minor miscellaneous changes and fixlets. - Patches updated to they apply cleanly and with no offset.
* Tue May 28 2013 pthAATTsuse.de- Remove aclocal-am_ac.patch and aclocal-am_ac.sh as they aren\'t needed anymore and instead cause havok.
* Mon May 27 2013 pthAATTsuse.de- Update to 1.13.2 (for the full change log please see the file NEWS in the package documentation):
* Obsolescent features: - Use of suffix-less info files (that can be specified through the \'AATTsetfilename\' macro in Texinfo input files) is discouraged, and its use will raise warnings in the \'obsolete\' category. - Use of Texinfo input files with \'.txi\' or \'.texinfo\' extensions is discouraged, and its use will raise warnings in the \'obsolete\' category. You are advised to simply use the \'.texi\' extension instead.
* Documentation fixes: - The long-deprecated but still supported two-arguments invocation form of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE is documented once again.
* Bugs fixed: - When the \'ustar\' option is used, the generated configure script no longer risks hanging during the tests for the availability of the \'pax\' utility, even if the user running configure has a UID or GID that requires more than 21 bits to be represented. - The obsolete macros AM_CONFIG_HEADER or AM_PROG_CC_STDC work once again, as they did in Automake 1.12.x (albeit printing runtime warnings in the \'obsolete\' category). - aclocal will no longer error out if the first local m4 directory (as specified by the \'-I\' option or the \'AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIRS\' or \'AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR\' macros) doesn\'t exist; it will merely report a warning in the \'unsupported\' category. - aclocal will no longer consider directories for extra m4 files more than once, even if they are specified multiple times. - Analysis of make flags in Automake-generated rules has been made more robust, and more future-proof.- Adapt automake-SUSE.patch to the changed sources.
* Mon Apr 29 2013 mmeisterAATTsuse.com- add a script to replace obsolete macros in configure.
*- call it from aclocal to avoid having to patch hundreds of packages
* Wed Mar 20 2013 mmeisterAATTsuse.com- Added url as source. Please see http://en.opensuse.org/SourceUrls
* Tue Feb 19 2013 p.drouandAATTgmail.com- Update to version 1.13.1:
* Bugs fixed: - Use of the obsolete macros AM_CONFIG_HEADER or AM_PROG_CC_STDC now causes a clear and helpful error message, instead of obscure ones (issue introduced in Automake 1.13).- Remove config-guess-sub-update.diff; config.guess and config.sub are not included anymore in /lib- Remove- Clean the specfile; remove useless conditionnal macros- Automake now provide manfiles by default and help2man is not required anymore
* Sat Feb 02 2013 dmuellerAATTsuse.com- update config.guess/sub to the latest state
* Thu Sep 13 2012 pthAATTsuse.de- Run pre_checkin.sh to sync automake-testsuite pec and .changes.
* Tue Sep 11 2012 p.drouandAATTgmail.com- Update to 1.12.3: - reworks and reshuffles the Automake testsuite a bit; fixing some weaknesses and spurious failures in the process, but also, likely, introducing new ones; - introduces initial support for automatic dependency tracking with the Portland Group C/C++ compilers (thanks to Dave Goodell and Jeff A. Daily); - fixes several long-standing bugs and limitations in the \'ylwrap\' script (thanks to Akim Demaille); among the other things, the long-standing PR/491 and automake bug#7648 are now fixed.- Remove automake-add-mkdir_p-temporarly.patch:
* Only temporary hack for openSUSE 12.2, now it is time to remove it
* Wed Jul 04 2012 cooloAATTsuse.com- make sure we still define $(mkdir_p) for the time being
* Wed Jun 27 2012 tom.mbrtAATTgooglemail.com- Update to 1.12.1: Bugs fixed in 1.12.1: - Several weaknesses in Automake\'s own build system and test suite have been fixed. - Aclocal works correctly with perl 5.16.0 (automake bug#11543). - Starting from either the next minor version (1.12.2) or the next major version (1.13), Automake will start warning if \'configure.in\' is used instead of \'configure.ac\' as the Autoconf input. Future versions of Automake will drop support for \'configure.in\' altogether.
* Fri May 04 2012 pthAATTsuse.de- Run pre_checkin.sh manually.
* Thu Apr 26 2012 pthAATTsuse.de- Update to 1.12:
* Changes to Yacc and Lex support: - C source and header files derived from non-distributed Yacc and/or Lex sources are now removed by a simple \"make clean\" (while they were previously removed only by \"make maintainer-clean\"). - Slightly backward-incompatible change, relevant only for use of Yacc with C++: the extensions of the header files produced by the Yacc rules are now modelled after the extension of the corresponding sources. For example, yacc files named \"foo.y++\" and \"bar.yy\" will produce header files named \"foo.h++\" and \"bar.hh\" respectively, where they would have previously produced header files named simply \"foo.h\" and \"bar.h\". This change offers better compatibility with \'bison -o\'.
* Miscellaneous changes: - The AM_PROG_VALAC macro now causes configure to exit with status 77, rather than 1, if the vala compiler found is too old. - The build system of Automake itself now avoids the use of make recursion as much as possible. - Automake now prefers to quote \'like this\' or \"like this\", rather than `like this\', in diagnostic message and generated Makefiles, to accommodate the new GNU Coding Standards recommendations. - Automake has a new option \'--print-libdir\' that prints the path of the directory containing the Automake-provided scripts and data files. - The \'dist\' and \'dist-all\' targets now can run compressors in - parallel. - The rules to create pdf, dvi and ps output from Texinfo files now works better with modern \'texi2dvi\' script, by explicitly passing it the \'--clean\' option to ensure stray auxiliary files are not left to clutter the build directory. - Automake can now generate silenced rules for texinfo outputs. - Some auxiliary files that are automatically distributed by Automake (e.g., \'install-sh\', or the \'depcomp\' script for packages compiling C sources) might now be listed in the DIST_COMMON variable in many Makefile.in files, rather than in the top-level one. - Messages of types warning or error from \'automake\' and \'aclocal\' are now prefixed with the respective type, and presence of - Werror is noted. - Automake\'s early configure-time sanity check now tries to avoid sleeping for a second, which slowed down cached configure runs noticeably. In that case, it will check back at the end of the configure script to ensure that at least one second has passed, to avoid time stamp issues with makefile rules rerunning autotools programs. - The warnings in the category \'extra-portability\' are now enabled by \'-Wall\'. In previous versions, one has to use \'-Wextra-portability\' to enable them. - Various minor bugfixes for recent or long-standing bugs. For a more detailed list see the file NEWS in the package documentation.
* Wed Apr 18 2012 pthAATTsuse.de- Update to 1.11.5: Bugs fixed in 1.11.5:
* Bugs introduced by 1.11.3: - Vala files with \'.vapi\' extension are now recognized and handled correctly again. - Vala support work again for projects that contain some program built from \'.vala\' (and possibly \'.c\') sources and some other program built from \'.c\' sources
*only
*.
* Fri Apr 06 2012 tabrahamAATTnovell.com- Update to 1.11.4
* WARNING - future backward-incompatibilities: - The support for the \"obscure\" multilib feature has been deprecated, and will be moved out of the automake core in the next major Automake release (1.12). - The support for \".log -> .html\" conversion and the check-html and recheck-html targets will be removed in the next major Automake release (1.12). - The obsolescent AM_WITH_REGEX macro has been deprecated (since the GNU rx library has been decommissioned), and will be removed in the next major Automake release (1.12). - The `lzma\' compression format for distribution archives has been deprecated in favor of `xz\' and `lzip\', and will be removed in the next major Automake release (1.12). - The `--acdir\' option of aclocal is deprecated, and will probably be removed in the next major Automake release (1.12). - The exact order in which the directories in the aclocal macro search path are looked up is probably going to be changed in the next Automake release (1.12). - The Automake support for automatic de-ANSI-fication will be removed in the next major Automake release (1.12). - Starting from the next Automake release (1.12), warnings in the `extra-portability\' category will be enabled by `-Wall\' (right now, one has to use `-Wextra-portability\' explicitly).
* Misc changes: - The \'ar-lib\' script now ignores the \"s\" (symbol index) and \"S\" (no symbol index) modifiers as well as the \"s\" action, as the symbol index is created unconditionally by Microsoft lib. Also, the \"q\" (quick) action is now a synonym for \"r\" (replace). Also, the script has been ignoring the \"v\" (verbose) modifier already since Automake 1.11.3 - When the \'compile\' script is used to wrap MSVC, it now accepts an optional space between the -I, -L and -l options and their respective arguments, for better POSIX compliance - There is an initial, experimental support for automatic dependency tracking with tcc (the Tiny C Compiler). Its associated depmode is currently recognized as \"icc\" (but this and other details are likely to change in future versions) - Automatic dependency tracking now works also with the IBM XL C/C++ compilers, thanks to the new new depmode \'xlc\'
* Bugs fixed: - A definition of \'noinst_PYTHON\' before \'python_PYTHON\' (or similar) don\'t cause spurious failures upon \"make install\" anymore - The user can now instruct the \'uninstall-info\' rule not to update the \'${infodir}/dir\' file by exporting the environment variable \'AM_UPDATE_INFO_DIR\' to the value \"no\". This is done for consistency with how the \'install-info\' rule operates since automake 1.11.2.
* Long standing bugs: - It is now possible for a foo_SOURCES variable to hold Vala sources together with C header files, as well as with sources and headers for other supported languages (e.g., C++). Previously, only mixing C and Vala sources was supported - If \"aclocal --install\" is used, and the first directory specified with \'-I\' is non-existent, aclocal will now create it before trying to copy files in it - An empty declaration of a \"foo_PRIMARY\" don\'t cause anymore the generated install rules to create an empty $(foodir) directory; for example, if Makefile.am contains something like: pkglibexec_SCRIPTS = if FALSE pkglibexec_SCRIPTS += bar.sh endif the $(pkglibexec) directory will not be created upon \"make install\".- Changes from 1.11.3 - Automake\'s own build system is more silent by default, making use of the \'silent-rules\' option - The master copy of the `gnupload\' script is now maintained in gnulib, not in automake - The `missing\' script doesn\'t try to wrap calls to `tar\' anymore - \"make dist\" doesn\'t wrap `tar\' invocations with the `missing\' script anymore. Similarly, the obsolescent variable `$(AMTAR)\' (which you shouldn\'t be using BTW ;-) does not invoke the missing script anymore to wrap tar, but simply invokes the `tar\' program itself - \"make dist\" can now create lzip-compressed tarballs - In the Automake info documentation, the Top node and the nodes about the invocation of the automake and aclocal programs have been renamed; now, calling \"info automake\" will open the Top node, while calling \"info automake-invocation\" and \"info aclocal-invocation\" will access the nodes about the invocation of respectively automake and aclocal - Automake is now distributed as a gzip-compressed and an xz-compressed tarball. Previously, bzip2 was used instead of xz - The last relics of Python 1.5 support have been removed from the AM_PATH_PYTHON macro - For programs and libraries, automake now detects EXTRA_foo_DEPENDENCIES and adds them to the normal list of dependencies, but without overwriting the foo_DEPENDENCIES variable, which is normally computed by automake
* Bugs fixed: - Automake now correctly recognizes the prefix/primary combination `pkglibexec_SCRIPTS\' as valid - The parallel-tests harness doesn\'t trip anymore on sed implementations with stricter limits on the length of input lines (problem seen at least on Solaris 8)
* Long standing bugs: - The \"deleted header file problem\" for
*.am files is avoided by stub rules. This allows `make\' to trigger a rerun of `automake\' also if some previously needed `.am\' file has been removed - The `silent-rules\' option now generates working makefiles even for the uncommon `make\' implementations that do not support the nested-variables extension to POSIX 2008. For such `make\' implementations, whether a build is silent is determined at configure time, and cannot be overridden at make time with `make V=0\' or `make V=1\' - Vala support now works better in VPATH setups- Changes from 1.11.2
* Changes to aclocal: - The `--acdir\' option is deprecated. Now you should use the new options `--automake-acdir\' and `--system-acdir\' instead. - The `ACLOCAL_PATH\' environment variable is now interpreted as a colon-separated list of additional directories to search after the automake internal acdir (by default ${prefix}/share/aclocal-APIVERSION) and before the system acdir (by default ${prefix}/share/aclocal).
* Misc changes: - The Automake support for automatic de-ANSI-fication has been deprecated. It will probably be removed in the next major Automake release (1.12). - The `lzma\' compression scheme and associated automake option `dist-lzma\' is obsoleted by `xz\' and `dist-xz\' due to upstream changes. - You may adjust the compression options used in dist-xz and dist-bzip2. The default is now merely -e for xz, but still -9 for bzip; you may specify a different level via the XZ_OPT and BZIP2 envvars respectively. E.g., \"make dist-xz XZ_OPT=-7\" or \"make dist-bzip2 BZIP2=-5\" - The `compile\' script now converts some options for MSVC for a better user experience. Similarly, the new `ar-lib\' script wraps Microsoft lib. - The py-compile script now accepts empty arguments passed to the options `--destdir\' and `--basedir\', and complains about unrecognized options. Moreover, a non-option argument or a special `--\' argument terminates the list of options. - A developer that needs to pass specific flags to configure at \"make distcheck\" time can now, and indeed is advised to, do so by defining the developer-reserved makefile variable AM_DISTCHECK_CONFIGURE_FLAGS, instead of the old DISTCHECK_CONFIGURE_FLAGS. The DISTCHECK_CONFIGURE_FLAGS variable should now be reserved for the user; still, the old Makefile.am files that used to define it will still continue to work as before. - New macro AM_PROG_AR that looks for an archiver and wraps it in the new \'ar-lib\' auxiliary script if the selected archiver is Microsoft lib. This new macro is required for LIBRARIES and LTLIBRARIES when automake is run with -Wextra-portability and -Werror. - When using DejaGnu-based testsuites, the user can extend the `site.exp\' file generated by automake-provided rules by defining the special make variable `$(EXTRA_DEJAGNU_SITE_CONFIG)\'. - The `install-info\' rule can now be instructed not to create/update the `${infodir}/dir\' file, by exporting the new environment variable `AM_UPDATE_INFO_DIR\' to the value \"no\".
* Bugs fixed: - When the parallel-tests driver is in use, automake now explicitly rejects invalid entries and conditional contents in TEST_EXTENSIONS, instead of issuing confusing and apparently unrelated error messages (e.g., \"non-POSIX variable name\", \"bad characters in variable name\", or \"redefinition of TEST_EXTENSIONS), or even, in some situations, silently producing broken `Makefile.in\' files - The `silent-rules\' option now truly silences all compile rules, even when dependency tracking is disabled. Also, when `silent-rules\' is not used, `make\' output no longer contains spurious backslash-only lines, thus once again matching what Automake did before 1.11. - The AM_COND_IF macro also works if the shell expression for the conditional is no longer valid for the condition.
* Long standing bugs: - The order of Yacc and Lex flags is fixed to be consistent with other languages: $(AM_YFLAGS) comes before $(YFLAGS), and $(AM_LFLAGS) before $(LFLAGS), so that the user variables override the developer variables. - \"make distcheck\" now correctly complains also when \"make uninstall\" leaves one and only one file installed in $(prefix). - A \"make uninstall\" issued before a \"make install\", or after a mere \"make install-data\" or a mere \"make install-exec\" does not spuriously fail anymore. - Automake now warns about more primary/directory invalid combinations, such as \"doc_LIBRARIES\" or \"pkglib_PROGRAMS\". - Rules generated by Automake now try harder to not change any files when `make -n\' is invoked. Fixes include compilation of Emacs Lisp, Vala, or Yacc source files and the rule to update config.h. - Several scripts and the parallel-tests testsuite driver now exit with the right exit status upon receiving a signal. - A per-Makefile.am setting of -Werror does not erroneously carry over to the handling of other Makefile.am files. - The code for automatic dependency tracking works around a Solaris make bug triggered by sources containing repeated slashes when the `subdir-objects\' option was used. - The makedepend and hp depmodes now work better with VPATH builds. - Java sources specified with check_JAVA are no longer compiled for \"make all\", but only for \"make check\". - An usage like \"java_JAVA = foo.java\" will now cause Automake to warn and error out if `javadir\' is undefined, instead of silently producing a broken Makefile.in. - aclocal and automake now honour the configure-time definitions of AUTOCONF and AUTOM4TE when they spawn autoconf or autom4te processes. - The `install-info\' recipe no longer tries to guess whether the `install-info\' program is from Debian or from GNU, and adaptively change its behaviour; this has proven to be frail and easy to regress.
* Tue Dec 20 2011 cooloAATTsuse.com- add autoconf as buildrequire to avoid implicit dependency
* Sun Dec 18 2011 sweet_f_aAATTgmx.de- correct license and style (prepare_spec)- minor build fixes, avoid deprecated macros to be more portable
* Sat Sep 17 2011 jengelhAATTmedozas.de- Remove redundant tags/sections from specfile
* Mon Jun 28 2010 jengelhAATTmedozas.de- use %_smp_mflags
* Fri Dec 11 2009 pthAATTsuse.de- Update to 1.11.1 (bnc#559815): - The `parallel-tests\' test driver works around a GNU make 3.80 bug with trailing white space in the test list (`TESTS = foo $(EMPTY)\').
* Long standing bugs: - The testsuite does not try to change the mode of `ltmain.sh\' files from a Libtool installation (symlinked to test directories) any more. - AM_PROG_GCJ uses AC_CHECK_TOOLS to look for `gcj\' now, so that prefixed tools are preferred in a cross-compile setup. - The distribution is tarred up with mode 755 now by the `dist
*\' targets. This fixes a race condition where untrusted users could modify files in the $(PACKAGE)-$(VERSION) distdir before packing if the toplevel build directory was world-searchable. This is CVE-2009-4029.- Make automake a noarch package. Sun Dec 6 18:02:39 CET 2009 - jengelh- enable parallel building
* Wed Aug 26 2009 cooloAATTnovell.com- rediff to avoid fuzz
* Fri Jul 10 2009 jansimon.moellerAATTopensuse.org- Disable the testsuite also for ARM as it blocks/stalls the worker.
* Sun Jun 21 2009 cooloAATTnovell.com- add empty %install section to testsuite to fix build
* Tue Jun 16 2009 cooloAATTnovell.com- split test suit into own package (new policy for bootstrap)
* Fri May 29 2009 puzelAATTsuse.cz- update to automake-1.11 - noteworthy changes: - require autoconf-2.62 - The autoconf version check implemented by aclocal in aclocal.m4 (and new in Automake 1.10) is degraded to a warning. This helps - The automake program can run multiple threads for creating most Makefile.in files concurrently in the common case where the Autoconf versions used are compatible. - Libtool generic flags are now passed to the install and uninstall modes as well. - distcheck works with Libtool 2.x even when LT_OUTPUT is used, as config.lt is removed correctly now. - subdir-object mode works now with Fortran (F77, FC, preprocessed Fortran, and Ratfor). - For files with extension .f90, .f95, .f03, or .f08, the flag $(FCFLAGS_f[09]x) computed by AC_FC_SRCEXT is now used in compile rules. - Files with extension .sx are also treated as preprocessed assembler. - The default source file extension (.c) can be overridden with AM_DEFAULT_SOURCE_EXT now. - Python 3.0 is supported now, Python releases prior to 2.0 are no longer supported. - AM_PATH_PYTHON honors python\'s idea about the site directory. - \"make dist\" can now create xz-compressed tarballs, as well as (deprecated?) lzma-compressed tarballs. - `automake --add-missing\' will by default install the GPLv3 file as COPYING if it is missing. - for full changelog please see /usr/share/doc/packages/automake/NEWS- remove automake-fix_check10.patch (fixed upstream)- add automake-11.1-skip-specflg10-without-g++.patch (from upstream git)
* Thu Apr 30 2009 pthAATTsuse.de- Add upstream post 1.10.2 patch to fix the failing check10.test.
* Wed Apr 29 2009 pthAATTsuse.de- Rediff to sync the patches (automake-require_file.patch was off by ~ 500 lines). Update the reference to bugzilla for this patch.
* Wed Mar 11 2009 pthAATTsuse.de- Update to 1.10.2:
* Rebuild rules now also work for a removed `subdir/Makefile.in\' in an otherwise up to date tree.
* Work around AIX sh quoting issue in AC_PROG_CC_C_O, leading to unnecessary use of the `compile\' script.
* `config.status --file=Makefile depfiles\' now also works with the extra quoting used internally by Autoconf 2.62 and newer (it used to work only without the `--file=\' bit).
* distcheck works with Libtool 2.x even when LT_OUTPUT is used, as config.lt is removed correctly now.
* The manual is now distributed under the terms of the GNU FDL 1.3.
* When `automake --add-missing\' causes the COPYING file to be installed, it will also warn that the license file should be added to source control.- Add bison again.- Pass docdir on to configure.- Add a rpmlintrc file
* Wed Mar 04 2009 pthAATTsuse.de- Prefix patches with package name.
