Re: [RFC] Update to current automake/autoconf/libtool versions.

I'm not sure I understand the question, but I'll elaborate on the situation a bit in hopes that I can answer it anyway.

Automake-1.4p5 generates's that use the syntax:


Automake-1.7 generates's that use the syntax:


So if we use automake-1.7 to build binutils/ld/gas, we need to use the ylwrap from automake-1.7 as well, which uses the new syntax and therefore requires the change to the GDB I don't think it's possible to have a version of the GDB that works with both versions.

But, to clarify even further: if we use the new ylwrap from Automake
1.7, regardless of what version of _automake_ we are using, then Klee's
patch to gdb/ will work.

This means that all directories which use both automake and ylwrap must
be converted at the same time however.

But GDB, which doesn't use automake, can start using the new one (locally) now, and get the patches committed?
