hmmm, I do now get warnings from autoreconf 2.69:

autoreconf: running: automake --add-missing --copy --force-missing
libasm/Makefile.am:66: warning: deprecated feature: target 'libasm.so' overrides 'libasm.so$(EXEEXT)'

Is this because I am using automake 1.13 and I really should upgrade to
something newer? Or do newer automakes also yell and scream about this?

Thanks,

Mark
