Noteworthy changes in release 2011.03.17

Item posted by Peter Simons <simons> on Thu 17 Mar 2011 09:01:01 PM UTC.

AX_PATH_GENERIC has been extended to allow setting LIBRARY_LIBS and LIBRARY_CFLAGS variables on configure command line or in the environment to override the normal values returned by `library-config --libs` and `--cflags` respectively. See <> for further details.

AX_LIB_EXPAT has been modified to save the found library in EXPAT_LIBS instead if EXPAT_LDFLAGS. This is necessary to avoid build failures when linking with --as-needed. See <> for further details.

AX_PKG_SWIG has been extended to find SWIG v2 as installed by Ubuntu Maverick and Ubuntu Natty.

AX_PROG_SPLINT has been added. The macro provides Automake support for the splint utility. See <> for further details.

Fixed a regression in AX_EXT_HAVE_LIB.

The new macro AX_BERKELEY_DB_CXX has been added. It is a variant of AX_BERKELEY_DB that has been adapted to check for C++ headers and libraries. See <> for further details.
