Let's say that, in an empty directory, I have a configure.ac file that looks like this:
Then I autoreconf, which puts ltmain.sh into the current directory. Now when I run autoscan, it produces the following warnings:
So I add these macros to my configure.ac, and now, when I autoreconf again, it includes this warning:
If I then go and remove AC_PROG_RANLIB, autoscan will then warn about it being missing again the next time I run it, leading to an endless cycle of conflicting warnings. Perhaps autoscan could be modified to just ignore ltmain.sh when scanning?
