GNU Autoconf Archive version 2011.07.17 is available for download

Item posted by Peter Simons <simons> on Sun 17 Jul 2011 04:03:18 PM UTC.

A cut-and-paste error in AX_BOOST_FILESSYTEM has been fixed. See <http://savannah.gnu.org/patch/?7576> for further details.

The macros AX_CHECK_SUNPRO_C and AX_LANG_COMPILER_MS are deprecated in favor of the more generic AX_COMPILER_VENDOR.

Several instance of under-quoted arguments have been fixed in AX_CHECK_OPENSSL. See <http://savannah.gnu.org/patch/?7571> for further details.

The new macros AX_CHECK_PREPROC_FLAG, AX_CHECK_COMPILE_FLAG, and AX_CHECK_LINK_FLAG have been added. They are intended to replace AX_CHECK_COMPILER_FLAGS, AX_CHECK_LINKER_FLAGS, AX_C_CHECK_FLAG, AX_CPP_CHECK_FLAG, AX_CXX_CHECK_FLAG, AX_CXXCPP_CHECK_FLAG and AX_LD_CHECK_FLAG. Consequently, the older macros have been marked obsolete, and they'll be removed from the archive in the foreseeable future. Further details can be found at <http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/autoconf-archive-maintainers/2011-06/msg00017.html>.

The new macro AX_APPEND_FLAG, to append a flag to a FLAGS variable, has been added. The convenience wrappers AX_APPEND_COMPILE_FLAGS and AX_APPEND_LINK_FLAGS have been added. Those two macros add the given flags only if the compiler/linker understands them.

The obsolete macros AX_CFLAGS_WARN_ALL_ANSI, AX_C_IFDEF, AX_C_PRINTF_THSEP, AX_GCC_OPTION, AX_WITH_GUILE, AX_WITH_PERL, AX_WITH_PYTHON, and AX_WITH_RUBY have been deleted.

The new macro AX_CHECK_MYSQL has been added. It is geared specifically toward MySQL plugin development. See <http://savannah.gnu.org/patch/?7553> for further details.

AX_PTHREAD has been extended to check for PTHREAD_PRIO_INHERIT. See <http://savannah.gnu.org/patch/?7552> for further details.

Several several bugs in AX_CHECK_DEFINE have been fixed. See <http://savannah.gnu.org/patch/?7551> for further details.

The new macros AX_PROG_CC_MPI, AX_PROG_CXX_MPI, AX_PROG_F77_MPI, and AX_PROG_FC_MPI address several shortcomings found in AX_MPI. Further details can be found at <http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/autoconf-archive-maintainers/2011-05/msg00004.html>, <http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/autoconf-archive-maintainers/2011-06/msg00003.html>.

AX_BOOST_THREAD: Two bugs have been fixed that prevented the macro from being used in cross-compilation environments for Windows on Unix.

AX_VAR_TIMEZONE_EXTERNALS, AX_FUNC_WHICH_GETHOSTBYNAME_R, and AX_PTHREAD have been updated to conform with Autoconf 2.68
