Here is the updated version of this patch.

I'm going to check this series in now.


commit 3266f10be2daf35319101f299ae988aa2bbd5297
Author: Tom Tromey <>
Date:   Wed Apr 24 10:45:45 2013 -0600

    introduce common.m4
    It has bothered me for a while that files in common/ use macros
    defined via autoconf checks, but rely on each doing the
    proper checks independently.
    This patch introduces common/common.m4 which consolidates the checks
    assumed by code in common.
    The rule I propose is that if something is needed or used by common,
    it should be checked for by common.m4.  However, if the check is also
    needed by gdb or gdbserver, then it should be duplicated there.
    Built and regtested on x86-64 Fedora 18 (though this is hardly the
    most strenuous case) and using the Fedora 18 mingw cross compilers.  I
    also examined the diffs to ensure that symbols did not go
