MichaelMoser on Dec 17, Because managing multiple pieces is too hard. For me it is called cmake. The use of these macros is slightly different from the standard checks, since they follow, for the most part, the same rules as once-expanded macros: Removal of this macro is scheduled for version 2.

Autotools Mythbuster: so why do we have three projects?

The intent is to facilitate solving common problems found during Gentoo Linux development. The license granted in Section 3 above is expressly autotoolz subject to and limited by the following restrictions: I didn’t really mean a literal database. You can read this item using any of the following Kobo apps and devices: That’s a good practice everyone should follow.

This Section 4 a applies to the Work as incorporated in a Autotools, but this does not require the Collection apart from the Work itself to be made subject to the terms of this License. The file format used in Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD and other operating systems to represent executable files programsshared objects as well as intermediate object files.


Mthbuster I don’t think it’s got quite the same goals as Autotools, though their scopes overlap in many respects. You are encouraged to avoid as much as possible version 2.

Autotools Mythbuster! A guide!

You are commenting using your Facebook account. Although I disagree that they didn’t produce a tolerably decent solution.

Each of this module will look for a particular thing. Starting with version 1. Myhtbuster more involved in another operating system might know them as “dynamically-linked libraries” DLL or simply “dynamic libraries”. It is certainly common to desire some organisation of the build products. Some modules are better written than other but they all allow you to bypass them.

There might be no need for further libraries to be added for the function to be available. This is what I ended up with after days of work: The Licensor reserves the right to collect royalties, whether individually or, in the event that mythbister Licensor is a member of a collecting society that administers voluntary xutotools schemes, via that society, from any exercise by You of the rights granted under this License that is for a purpose or use which is otherwise than noncommercial as permitted under Section 4 c.

If you want to patch the Autoconf-generated configure script with minimal changes, just reflecting the topic of the change you’re making, you need the exact same version of Autoconf with which it was generated, otherwise there will be irrelevant diffs all over the script.

The idea behind my guide was to present an integrated guide that shows the best practices, rather than showing all the possibilities, including those that distributions would have a hard time dealing with.


One of the hardest part during the development of a library package is handling of version information, as it relates to the binary interface exposed by said autotoole and is, thus, governed by those rules rather than what is a more human readable release version. GNU mythbustter see automake. As well as these three options, there is also the more “standard” option of simply requesting the presence of the library in the system, as is done for any other dependency and checking for it.

For this reason it is important to know exactly what changes between autotools versions, for the developers using them. Configuring the build consists of running a series of tests to identify the build environment and the presence of the required tools and libraries.

This is needed because this is one of the areas that changes most between operating systems, both in terms of actual technical requirements and in terms of conventions. My suggestion is very simply not to rely on them as much as you can. These are designed to provide, in a format easy to parse with “glob masks”; the major details that describe a computer system.
