Re: (top level patch) Autoconfiscate. (Woo!)

Nothing serious, but...

...I get the following warning when configuring readline:

   Configuring in readline
   configure: WARNING: If you wanted to set the --build type, don't use --host.
       If a cross compiler is detected then cross compile mode will be used.
   configure: loading cache .././config.cache
   checking build system type... i386-unknown-freebsd4.7
   checking host system type... i386-unknown-freebsd4.7

   Beginning configuration for readline-4.3 for i386-unknown-freebsd4.7

We get this warning since the readline subdirectory uses Autoconf
2.50, and toplevel passes --host, but not --build to configure.
Therefore I suspect that we'll see more of these warnings once we
start using Autoconf 2.5x for the other subdirectories too.

Anyway, as far as I can determine, the warning doesn't hurt, but we
might want to get rid of it.

Note that this is probably caused by an earlier patch, and not by this
last autoconfiscate patch, but I didn't notice it before.


P.S. Why is Makefile.tpl not included in the src CVS tree?  It is
     included in the gcc CVS tree.
