[CVS 980326]: Still problems with texinfo


The configure script in the texinfo directory needs to be rebuilt. It
contains unexpanded m4 macros like AM_MAINTAINER_MODE and the
like.

This results in unusable Makefile's later on (if you don't have
automake-1.2f installed - does anybody know where to get it? -
shouldn't we add it to the infrastructure directory?), because
when running make, it'll call automake due to timestamp reasons.
And my automake-1.2e renders to be totally broken with regard to
texinfo's configuration :-(

The generated Makefile.in (and Makefile) now contain macro definitions

DATA = $(INSTALL_DATA)

which are used lauter on as dependencies for the libs to be built,
and this fails of course with:

  rm -f libtxi.a
  ar cru libtxi.a getopt.o getopt1.o xmalloc.o xstrdup.o 
  true libtxi.a
  gmake[3]: *** No rule to make target `-c', needed by `all'.  Stop.

because `$(INSTALL_DATA) = /tools/gnu/bin/install -c -m 644'

As a workaround I used the following:

$ cd egcs/texinfo
$ mv configure configure.orig
$ autoconf
$ touch --file=configure.orig configure

manfred
