- update 0001-correct-parameter-parsing-in-test-driver-script.patch
  * avoid bashisms in test-driver script (bsc#1185540)

Fri Oct 20 18:16:24 UTC 2017 -

- Add missing BuildRequires perl(Thread::Queue)

Tue Jun 20 08:43:28 UTC 2017 -

- 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 07:34:09 UTC 2017 -

- add 0001-correct-parameter-parsing-in-test-driver-script.patch
  make parameter parsing of test driver script matching the help

Tue Sep  1 12:12:46 UTC 2015 -

- Add automake-perl-5.22.patch: Fix test suite with perl 5.22 by
  silencing some warnings.

Sun May 17 13:18:57 UTC 2015 -

- move delete of info file to preun section

Tue Feb 10 11:37:28 CET 2015 -

- 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
      (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; e.g.:

          $(srcdir)/ $(srcdir)/data.txt $(srcdir)/
              cd $(srcdir) && $(SHELL) <data.txt >
          include $(srcdir)/

      If the use forgot to add data.txt and/or 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 '') to be included via Automake includes in
      his main, 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)/".
      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  6 07:08:18 UTC 2014 -

- 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 13:35:50 CEST 2014 -

- Explicitely pass the directory name to setup so that the testsuite
  can run.

Wed Feb  5 14:47:23 UTC 2014 -

- 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 11:36:10 UTC 2013 -

- Add expect as BuildRequires/Requires for automake-testsuite.

Fri Aug 16 21:10:46 UTC 2013 -

- fix tests on factory

Mon Jun 17 13:43:50 CEST 2013 -

- 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,
    automake would needlessly include definition of some make variables
    related to C compilation in the generated (bug#14560).
- Adapt automake-SuSE.patch to changed config.guess.

Wed Jun 12 15:07:16 CEST 2013 -

- 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
      files in the same project, automake could get confused and
      generate inconsistent Makefiles (automake bug#14441).
      For example, if '' contained a "" suffix
      rule, and 'sub/' contained a ".ext.c:" suffix rule,
      automake would have mistakenly placed into '' rules
      to compile "*.c" files into object files, and into
      'sub/' 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 14:21:04 CEST 2013 -

- Remove aclocal-am_ac.patch and as they aren't
  needed anymore and instead cause havok.

Mon May 27 15:28:36 CEST 2013 -

- 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
    '@setfilename' 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

* 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 07:55:39 UTC 2013 -

- add a script to replace obsolete macros in configure.*
- call it from aclocal to avoid having to patch hundreds of packages

Wed Mar 20 13:38:33 UTC 2013 -

- Added url as source.
  Please see

Tue Feb 19 18:50:46 UTC 2013 -

- 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

Sat Feb  2 09:04:19 UTC 2013 -

- update config.guess/sub to the latest state 

Thu Sep 13 12:29:33 CEST 2012 -

- Run to sync automake-testsuite pec and .changes.

Tue Sep 11 17:34:05 UTC 2012 -

- 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  4 07:21:17 UTC 2012 -

- make sure we still define $(mkdir_p) for the time being

Wed Jun 27 15:46:00 UTC 2012 -

- 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 '' is used
   instead of '' as the Autoconf input.  Future versions of
   Automake will drop support for '' altogether.

Fri May  4 15:23:03 CEST 2012 -

- Run manually.

Thu Apr 26 16:32:56 CEST 2012 -

- 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

  - 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 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

Wed Apr 18 11:37:48 CEST 2012 -

- 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  6 15:51:31 UTC 2012 -

- 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 contains something like:

      pkglibexec_SCRIPTS =
      if FALSE
      pkglibexec_SCRIPTS +=

      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 ${prefix}/share/aclocal).
  * Misc changes:
    - The Automake support for automatic de-ANSI-fication has been
      deprecated.  It will probably be removed in the next major Automake
      release (1.12).
    - The `lzma' compression scheme and associated automake option `dist-lzma'
      is obsoleted by `xz' and `dist-xz' due to upstream changes.
    - You may adjust the compression options used in dist-xz and dist-bzip2.
      The default is now merely -e for xz, but still -9 for bzip;  you may
      specify a different level via the XZ_OPT and BZIP2 envvars respectively.
      E.g., "make dist-xz XZ_OPT=-7" or "make dist-bzip2 BZIP2=-5"
    - The `compile' script now converts some options for MSVC for a better
      user experience.  Similarly, the new `ar-lib' script wraps Microsoft lib.
    - The py-compile script now accepts empty arguments passed to the options
      `--destdir' and `--basedir', and complains about unrecognized options.
      Moreover, a non-option argument or a special `--' argument terminates
      the list of options.
   - A developer that needs to pass specific flags to configure at "make
      distcheck" time can now, and indeed is advised to, do so by defining
      the developer-reserved makefile variable AM_DISTCHECK_CONFIGURE_FLAGS,
      instead of the old DISTCHECK_CONFIGURE_FLAGS.
      The DISTCHECK_CONFIGURE_FLAGS variable should now be reserved for the
      user; still, the old files that used to define it will
      still continue to work as before.
    - New macro AM_PROG_AR that looks for an archiver and wraps it in the new
      'ar-lib' auxiliary script if the selected archiver is Microsoft lib.
      This new macro is required for LIBRARIES and LTLIBRARIES when automake
      is run with -Wextra-portability and -Werror.
    - When using DejaGnu-based testsuites, the user can extend the `site.exp'
      file generated by automake-provided rules by defining the special make
      variable `$(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 `' 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 setting of -Werror does not erroneously carry over
      to the handling of other 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 =" will now cause Automake to warn
      and error out if `javadir' is undefined, instead of silently producing
      a broken
    - 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

Fri Dec 11 16:41:49 CET 2009 -

- 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 `'
    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.

  - 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 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 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
  - 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

- Update to 1.10.2:
  * Rebuild rules now also work for a removed `subdir/' 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 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
- Add bison again.

Tue Jan 22 10:31:29 CET 2008 -

- Update to automake 1.10.1.
  * Automake development is done in a git repository on Savannah now, see
    A read-only CVS mirror is provided at
      cvs -d \
          checkout -d automake HEAD
  * "make dist" can now create lzma-compressed tarballs.
  * `automake --add-missing' will by default install the GPLv3 file as
    COPYING if it is missing.  Note that Automake will never overwrite
    an existing COPYING file, even when the `--force-missing' option is
    used.  Further note that Automake 1.10.1 is still licensed under GPLv2+.
  * Libtool generic flags are now passed to the install and uninstall
    modes as well.
  * Files with extension .sx are also treated as preprocessed assembler.
  * install-sh now has an BSD-like option `-C' to preserve modification
    times of unchanged files upon installation.
  * Fix aix dependency tracking for libtool objects.
  * The signal handling of aclocal has been improved.
  * Targets beginning with a digit are now recognized correctly.
  * All directories `.libs'/`_libs' used by libtool are cleaned now,
    not only those in which libraries are built.
  * Fix output of dummy dependency files in presence of post-processed's again, but also cope with long lines.
  * $(EXEEXT) is automatically appended to filenames of XFAIL_TESTS
    that have been declared as programs in the same Makefile.
    This is for consistency with the analogous change to TESTS in 1.10.
  * The autoconf version check implemented by aclocal in aclocal.m4
    (and new in Automake 1.10) is degraded to a warning.  This helps
    in the common case where the Autoconf versions used are compatible.
  * Fix order of standard includes to again be `-I. -I$(srcdir)',
    followed by directories containing config headers.

Sun Oct 15 22:27:09 CEST 2006 -

- Update to automake 1.10.
  * Version requirements:
    - Autoconf 2.60 or greater is required.
    - Perl 5.6 or greater is required.
  * Changes to aclocal:
    - aclocal now also supports -Wmumble and -Wno-mumble options.
    - `dirlist' entries (for the aclocal search path) may use shell
      wildcards such as `*', `?', or `[...]'.
    - aclocal supports an --install option that will cause system-wide
      third-party macros to be installed in the local directory
      specified with the first -I flag.  This option also uses #serial
      lines in M4 files to upgrade local macros.
      The new aclocal options --dry-run and --diff help to review changes
      before they are installed.
    - aclocal now outputs an autoconf version check in aclocal.m4 in
      projects using automake.
      For a few years, automake and aclocal have been calling autoconf
      (or its underlying engine autom4te) to accurately retrieve the
      data they need from and its siblings.  Doing so can
      only work if all autotools use the same version of autoconf.  For
      instance a generated by automake for one version of
      autoconf may stop working if configure is regenerated with another
      version of autoconf, and vice versa.
      This new version check ensures that the whole build system has
      been generated using the same autoconf version.
  * Support for new Autoconf macros:
    - The new AC_REQUIRE_AUX_FILE Autoconf macro is supported.
    - If `subdir-objects' is set, and AC_CONFIG_LIBOBJ_DIR is specified,
      $(LIBOBJS), $(LTLIBOBJS), $(ALLOCA), and $(LTALLOCA) can be used
      in different directories.  However, only one instance of such a
      library objects directory is supported.
  * Change to Libtool support:
    - Libtool generic flags (those that go before the --mode=MODE option)
      can be specified using AM_LIBTOOLFLAGS and target_LIBTOOLFLAGS.
  * Yacc and Lex changes:
    - The rebuild rules for distributed Yacc and Lex output will avoid
      overwriting existing files if AM_MAINTAINER_MODE and maintainer-mode
      is not enabled.
    - ylwrap is now always used for lex and yacc source files,
      regardless of whether there is more than one source per directory.
  * Languages changes:
    - Preprocessed assembler (*.S) compilation now honors CPPFLAGS,
      AM_CPPFLAGS and per-target _CPPFLAGS, and supports dependency
      tracking, unlike non-preprocessed assembler (*.s).
    - subdir-object mode works now with Assembler.  Automake assumes
      that the compiler understands `-c -o'.
    - Preprocessed assembler (*.S) compilation now also honors
    - Improved support for Objective C:
      - Autoconf's new AC_PROG_OBJC will enable automatic dependency tracking.
      - A new section of the manual documents the support.
    - New support for Unified Parallel C:
      - AM_PROG_UPC looks for a UPC compiler.
      - A new section of the manual documents the support.
    - Per-target flags are now correctly handled in link rules.
      For instance maude_CFLAGS correctly overrides AM_CFLAGS; likewise
      for maude_LDFLAGS and AM_LDFLAGS.  Previous versions bogusly
      preferred AM_CFLAGS over maude_CFLAGS while linking, and they
      used both AM_LDFLAGS and maude_LDFLAGS on the same link command.
      The fix for compiler flags (i.e., using maude_CFLAGS instead of
      AM_CFLAGS) should not hurt any package since that is how _CFLAGS
      is expected to work (and actually works during compilation).
      However using maude_LDFLAGS "instead of" AM_LDFLAGS rather than
      "in addition to" breaks backward compatibility with older versions.
      If your package used both variables, as in
	AM_LDFLAGS = common flags
	bin_PROGRAMS = a b c
	a_LDFLAGS = more flags
      and assumed *_LDFLAGS would sum up, you should rewrite it as
	AM_LDFLAGS = common flags
	bin_PROGRAMS = a b c
	a_LDFLAGS = $(AM_LDFLAGS) more flags
      This new behavior of *_LDFLAGS is more coherent with other
      per-target variables, and the way *_LDFLAGS variables were
      considered internally.
  * New installation targets:
    - New targets mandated by GNU Coding Standards:
      By default they will only install Texinfo manuals.
      You can customize them with *-local variants:
    - The undocumented recursive target `uninstall-info' no longer exists.
      (`uninstall' is in charge of removing all possible documentation
      flavors, including optional formats such as dvi, ps, or info even
      when `no-installinfo' is used.)
  * Miscellaneous changes:
    - Automake no longer complains if input files for AC_CONFIG_FILES
      are specified using shell variables.
    - clean, distribution, or rebuild rules are normally disabled for
      inputs and outputs of AC_CONFIG_FILES, AC_CONFIG_HEADERS, and
      AC_CONFIG_LINK specified using shell variables.  However, if these
      variables are used as ${VAR}, and AC_SUBSTed, then Automake will
      be able to output rules anyway.
      (See the Automake documentation for AC_CONFIG_FILES.)
    - $(EXEEXT) is automatically appended to filenames of TESTS
      that have been declared as programs in the same Makefile.
      This is mostly useful when some check_PROGRAMS are listed in TESTS.
    - `-Wportability' has finally been turned on by default for `gnu' and
      `gnits' strictness.  This means, automake will complain about %-rules
      or $(GNU Make functions) unless you switch to `foreign' strictness or
      use `-Wno-portability'.
    - Automake now uses AC_PROG_MKDIR_P (new in Autoconf 2.60), and uses
      $(MKDIR_P) instead of $(mkdir_p) to create directories.  The
      $(mkdir_p) variable is still defined (to the same value as
      $(MKDIR_P)) but should be considered obsolete.  If you are using
      $(mkdir_p) in some of your rules, please plan to update them to
      $(MKDIR_P) at some point.
    - AM_C_PROTOTYPES and ansi2knr are now documented as being obsolete.
      They still work in this release, but may be withdrawn in a future one.
    - Inline compilation rules for gcc3-style dependency tracking are
      more readable.
    - Automake installs a "Hello World!" example package in $(docdir).
      This example is used throughout the new "Autotools Introduction"
      chapter of the manual.
