It seems to work up to now. A few comments (I do not provide a patch,
unless you commit your patch first).
** In autogen.sh:
- the check for GNUM4 is not needed.
** In configure.ac:
- the version 1.1cvs is not the same as the version in forms.h
- I am not sure that you need the following lines:
but then XFORMS_CHECK_VERSION should look at PACKAGE_VERSION variable.
- why not generate config.h in lib/ ?
- the check for M4 is not needed
- did you check that the HAVE_foo defines generated in config.h are
actually used somewhere? If not, it means that the library used to
compile without them and you should remove the tests altogether
- I think you can remove the following:
dnl This is a slight hack: the tests generated by autoconf 2.52 do not
dnl work correctly because of some conflict with stdlib.h with g++ 2.96
dnl We aim to remove this eventually, since we should test as much as
dnl possible with the compiler which will use the functions (JMarc)
- I think you can safely remove the whole AH_BOTTOM thing
** When building I get a _lot_ of warnings about unused parameters,
but I guess you know that already.
** running: some of the demos do not run when building outside of
More to come later, I guess.
