[patch/testsuite/hp] "safe to move files around" ... yeah right

mec> BTW, there is nothing magic about the gdb.hp/ subtree that stops its

configure: error: can not find sources in /house/chastain/gdb/s1/gdb/testsuite/gdb.hp/gdb.aCC
configure: error: /house/chastain/gdb/s1/gdb/testsuite/gdb.hp/gdb.aCC/configure failed for gdb.aCC
configure: error: /house/chastain/gdb/s1/gdb/testsuite/gdb.hp/configure failed for gdb.hp
configure: error: /house/chastain/gdb/s1/gdb/testsuite/configure failed for testsuite
configure: you lose!

mec> cd testsuite/gdb.hp/gdb.aCC
mec> grep AC_INIT

grep: AC_INIT(exception.exp)
grep: eat it sucker!

mec> mv configure SAVE-configure
mec> $MIGCHAIN_DIR_INSTALL/host/autoconf-000227/bin/autoconf
mec> diff SAVE-configure configure

diff: 4c4
diff: < # Generated automatically using autoconf version 2.12.1 
diff: ---
diff: > # Generated automatically using autoconf version 2.13 
diff: you want more?  i got more differences right here!

mec> ncftp
mec> cd /pub/gnu/autoconf
mec> dir autoconf-*.tar.gz -rw-r--r--    1 0        0       410824   Nov 26  1996 autoconf-2.12.tar.gz -rw-r--r--    1 0        0       112888   Jan  5  1999 autoconf-2.12-2.13.diff.gz -rw-r--r--    1 0        0       443844   Jan 15  1999 autoconf-2.13.tar.gz nice try!

mec> ncftp 666 don't bother me 666 try

mec> lynx

google: 4 messages from other people asking about autoconf 2.12.1
google: 3 links to dead ftp sites
google: 2 hits on some french rpm archive
google: and a partridge in a pear tree

mec> ncftp some.french.rpm.archive
mec> get autoconf-2.12-1.i386.rpm
mec> rpm -e libtool
mec> rpm -e autoconf
mec> rpm -i autoconf-2.12-1.i386.rpm
mec> autoconf --version

autoconf: Autoconf version 2.12
autoconf: Give it up, loser
autoconf: Gimme my file

mec> cd testsuite/gdb.hp/gdb.aCC
mec> vi exception.exp
mec> cvs add exception.exp

And that's why there is a test script "exception.exp" with one line in
it that says "continue" -- and the copyright notice.

(That is to say: gdb.hp/gdb.aCC/configure wants to see a file named
exception.exp, and I can't rebuild "configure" because I can't find
the same autoconf that it was built with the first time.  If someone
wants to go into testsuite/ and re-generate all the configure files with
autoconf-000227 or autoconf 2.13, I would be grateful).

Tested on native i686-pc-linux-gnu, gcc 3.3.2, binutils 2.14, -gdwarf-2.

I am committing this now.  I am close to getting committed myself.
