Hello, BTW, I noticed in my make tree this patch that has not made it into upstream yet: <http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-make/2009-02/msg00026.html> Maybe you could take a peek at it?
Other than that, here is a small patch to fix a configure glitch: with AC_CACHE_VAL, the third argument should contain code that sets the cache variable, but not have any other side-effects. The reason for this is that, with a './config.status --recheck' (that may be triggered by make), the cached values from config.cache (if enabled) may cause these commands to be by-passed. The fix is to move side-effects after the check, and key them off the cache variable, as below. (Newer autoconfs warn about this issue.) The move to put the AC_SUBSTs outside of any conditional code is not needed for correctness, merely done for clarity: the substitution is done in any case anyway. Cheers, Ralf 2009-07-29 Ralf Wildenhues <ralf.wildenh...@gmx.de> * configure.in: Move side-effects outside AC_CACHE_VAL arguments that set make_cv_sys_gnu_glob, so they are also correctly set when the cache has been populated before.
