|SUBJECT ||Re: [Hangout - NYLXS] New libtool maintainer: request for feedback
|Thanks for the heads up.
I will take a look at this as soon as I can. I'm still working my way
through a lot of the boilerplate new maintainer stuff, which at least
for `libtool' is a lot to unpack ( but I'm making good progress ).
From the sounds of it `libtoolize' seems to have several conflicts with
the rest of `autotools' that need to get ironed out. Could you provide
info about tool versions and relevant `configure.ac'/`Makefile.am'
snippets? I'll start by adding a test case for it.
The need for `ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS' always seemed wonky to me as well; I'll
look at getting it removed. Off the top of my head I imagine `autom4te
-l autoconf configure.ac -t AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIRS:\$%;' somewhere in
`libtoolize' would do the trick ( we'll hope it's that easy at least haha ).
