# We use `/bin/sh -n script' to check that there are no syntax errors
# in the scripts.  Although incredible, there are /bin/sh that go into
# endless loops with `-n', e.g., SunOS's:
#
#   $ uname -a
#   SunOS ondine 4.1.3 2 sun4m unknown
#   $ cat endless.sh
#   while false
#   do
#     :

#   sh endless.sh  0,02s user 0,03s system 78% cpu 0,064 total
#   $ time sh -nx endless.sh
#   ^Csh -nx endless.sh  3,67s user 0,03s system 63% cpu 5,868 total
#
# Also, some implementations of /bin/sh (e.g., Solaris 8) are soooo slow
# that they are unusable on large scripts like our testsuite.

# So before using `/bin/sh -n' to check our scripts, we first check
# that `/bin/sh -n' is known to not have these problems.

You are about to use an experimental version of Autoconf.  Be sure to
read the relevant mailing lists, most importantly <autoconf@gnu.org>.

Below you will find information on the status of this version of Autoconf.
