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 Makefile.in's that use the syntax:
ylwrap PROGRAM INPUT [OUTPUT DESIRED]... -- [ARGS]...
Automake-1.7 generates Makefile.in's that use the syntax:
ylwrap INPUT [OUTPUT DESIRED]... -- PROGRAM [ARGS]...
So if we use automake-1.7 to build Makefile.in 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 Makefile.in. I don't
think it's possible to have a version of the GDB Makefile.in 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/Makefile.in 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?
