|Description:||System for generating configure scripts (2.69-3)|
GNU Autoconf is a package for generating configure scripts. These scripts are present in a large number of free software packages and are used to detect system features at compilation time. This package installs the latest Autoconf version. It has some compatibility problems with older packages. If you want to work on a package that requires Autoconf 2.13, install the autoconf2.13 package instead. There are also enough incompatibilities with autoconf 2.5x to 2.63, that this is a separate package, this autoconf version should work on most modern configure scripts, however. Add patch with upstream autoconf git commits... 8c8522f1c5c8362ec683b5464e99a95bc735677f a357718b081f1678748ead5d7cb67c766c930441 to allow for builds with texinfo 5.0.
