This was on a Windows XP SP1/cygwin P4 system with these packages:

binutils  2.13.90 20021118  (cygwin ver. 20021117-1)
cygwin    1.3.18-1
dejagnu   1.4.2.x           (cygwin ver. 20021217-2)
gcc       3.2-3

cvs trunk

LAST_UPDATED: Mon Jan  6 08:05:58 GMT 2003

When configuring and trying to build, I get this

cd /usr/local/src/gcc-binutils/trunk/src && autoconf
configure.in:2068: error: possibly undefined macro: AS_FOR_TARGET
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
make: *** [/usr/local/src/gcc-binutils/trunk/src/configure] Error 1

when running autoconf --version in the build dir, I get this:

autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.57

Autoconf version 2.13

This is autoconf-wrapper, which will hand off execution
to one of the two real versions listed above, depending
on the contents of configure.in/configure.ac.  Since the
wrapper was called from within a directory in which those
files are not found, this generic 'version' message is
displayed.

and when running it in the source dir

chj@TOPPEN:/usr/local/src/gcc-binutils/trunk/src$ autoconf --version

Are we on the road to 2.5x?

Cheers,
