The Autoconf Macro Archive

All these macros are copyrighted!

   Please note that every macro contained in this archive is copyrighted
   by its respective author, unless the macro source explicitely says
   otherwise. Permission has been granted, though, to use and distribute
   all macros under the following license, which is a modified version of
   the GNU General Public License version 2:

     Every Autoconf macro presented on this web site is free software;
     you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU
     General Public License as published by the Free Software
     Foundation; either version 2, or (at your option) any later

     They are distributed in the hope that they will be useful, but
     WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
     General Public License for more details. (You should have received
     a copy of the GNU General Public License along with this program;
     if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple
     Place -- Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307, USA.)

     As a special exception, the Free Software Foundation gives
     unlimited permission to copy, distribute and modify the configure
     scripts that are the output of Autoconf. You need not follow the
     terms of the GNU General Public License when using or distributing
     such scripts, even though portions of the text of Autoconf appear
     in them. The GNU General Public License (GPL) does govern all other
     use of the material that constitutes the Autoconf program.

     Certain portions of the Autoconf source text are designed to be
     copied (in certain cases, depending on the input) into the output
     of Autoconf. We call these the "data" portions. The rest of the
     Autoconf source text consists of comments plus executable code that
     decides which of the data portions to output in any given case. We
     call these comments and executable code the "non-data" portions.
     Autoconf never copies any of the non-data portions into its output.

     This special exception to the GPL applies to versions of Autoconf
     released by the Free Software Foundation. When you make and
     distribute a modified version of Autoconf, you may extend this
     special exception to the GPL to apply to your modified version as
     well, *unless* your modified version has the potential to copy into
     its output some of the text that was the non-data portion of the
     version that you started with. (In other words, unless your change
     moves or copies text from the non-data portions to the data
     portions.) If your modification has such potential, you must delete
     any notice of this special exception to the GPL from your modified
