ChangeLog.03   [plain text]

2003-12-31  Alexandre Duret-Lutz  <>

	* (generate_makefile): Update misleading comment.

	* (handle_languages): Define %DEPBASE% conditionally
	on subdir-objects.  Define SUBDIROBJ.  Do not clean *_.c files
	here ...
	(lang_c_finish): ... do it here.
	(handle_single_transform_list): Do not output specific rules for
	subdir-objects files which are not renamed.  This should reduce
	the size of Makefiles with lots of subdirectory sources.
	* lib/depcomp: Simplify computation of dependency output, and use
	* lib/am/ (%EXT%.o, %EXT%.obj, %EXT%.lo): Adjust call
	to depcomp.  Compute depbase on-the-fly in generic fastdep rules
	for subdir-objects.
	* tests/ansi9.test: Do not grep for an explicit rule that
	we no longer expect.  Really run $MAKE to make sure the chain
	of rules works.
	* tests/yacc5.test: Do not grep for an explicit rule that
	we no longer expect.  Adjust to use set -e.

	a required files outside the current directory or its subdirectories.

2003-12-26  Alexandre Duret-Lutz  <>

	* doc/automake.texi (@copying): Do not repeat the version.
	(Top): Use @insertcopying.  Add a @detailmenu, this works around
	Emacs 21's inability to lookup indices in sub-nodes (reported
	by Kevin Ryde).
	(C++ Support, Assembly Support, Fortran 77 Support, Java Support,
	Support for Other Languages, Preprocessing Fortran 77, Compiling
	Fortran 77 Files, Mixing Fortran 77 With C and C++, How the Linker
	is Chosen): Add missing descriptions in menus.
	(Fortran 77 and Autoconf): Remove, this node was just saying "use
	Autoconf 2.53 or greater".

	* doc/automake.texi: More target vs. rule editing.  Back out some

	points", or as thing to build, but targets cannot be run: rules
	are run.

	* doc/automake.texi: s/target/rule/ where appropriate.  A target
	is the destination of a target rule, not the rule itself.
	Suggested by Bruno Haible.

	* tests/man2.test: Reflect change automake: check for files in
	'_build' and '_inst' directories instead of '=build' and '=inst'.

	* m4/init.m4 (AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE): Require AM_SET_LEADING_DOT.:
	* m4/depend.m4 (AM_SET_DEPDIR): Require AM_SET_LEADING_DOT. Define
	DEPDIR using am__leading_dot.
	* (require_build_directory): Define am__dirstamp, a new
	variable for the dirstamp basename, based on am__leading_dot.
	* tests/subobj6.test: Move all `test -f' into Makefiles, so we can
	use $(am__dirstamp).

	* (maintainer-check): Suggest using $sleep instead of
	sleep 2.
	* tests/ (sleep): New variable.
	* tests/asm.test, tests/confsub.test, tests/lisp3.test,
	tests/texinfo16.test, tests/warnopts.test, tests/yaccvpath.test:
	Use $sleep instead of sleep 2, to work around timestamp
	inconsistencies in Windows.
	Reported by Richard Dawe.

	* (maintainer-check): Do not require SHELL=/bin/sh
	after $MAKE -e.
	* tests/ansi3.test, tests/ansi5.test, tests/cond22.test,
	tests/man2.test, tests/subobj3.test, tests/suffix8.test,
	tests/suffix11.test: Do not set SHELL=/bin/sh after $MAKE -e.

	* tests/ansi.test, tests/insh2.test, tests/texinfo.test,
	tests/texinfo8.test: Use SHELL=$SHELL, not SHELL=/bin/sh.
	Reported by Richard Dawe.

	($gen_copyright): Append year 2003.
	(version): Increase year.

	the installed aclocal.  Otherwise Libtool and Gettext
	tests get skipped when aclocal doesn't preexist.
	Reported by Imacat.
	* tests/listval.test, tests/suffix2.test: Remove pointless -I
	argument to aclocal.
