Update devel/autoconf to 2.70

2.70 deprecates a lot of stuff, so expect more warnings, but generally things
seem to work fine, so updating to 2.70 shouldn't break much.

Also update mk/gnu-config/*, as per the comment in devel/autoconf/Makefile.
mk/gnu-config/missing is not actually part of autoconf, but of automake, which
I did not update - however, the file was quite out of date, so I took the
liberty to update that one with the latest automake.

The change log is too long to include in this commit, given how many years
there were between 2.69 and 2.70. Check the file ChangeLog after `make

Update to 2.69:

* Noteworthy changes in release 2.69 (2012-04-24) [stable]

** Autoconf now requires perl 5.6 or better (but generated configure
   scripts continue to run without perl).

* Noteworthy changes in release 2.68b (2012-03-01) [beta]
  Released by Eric Blake, based on git versions 2.68.*.

** Autoconf-generated configure scripts now unconditionally re-execute
   themselves with $CONFIG_SHELL, if that's set in the environment.

** The texinfo documentation no longer specifies "front-cover" or
   "back-cover" texts, so that it may now be included in Debian's
   "main" section.

** Support for the Go programming language has been added.  The new macro
   AC_LANG_GO sets variables GOC and GOFLAGS.

** AS_LITERAL_IF again treats '=' as a literal.  Regression introduced in

** The macro AS_EXECUTABLE_P, present since 2.50, is now documented.

** Macros

- AC_PROG_LN_S and AS_LN_S now fall back on 'cp -pR' (not 'cp -p') if 'ln -s'
  does not work.  This works better for symlinks to directories.


- New and updated macros for Fortran support:

    AC_FC_CHECK_BOUNDS to enable array bounds checking
    AC_F77_IMPLICIT_NONE and AC_FC_IMPLICIT_NONE to disable implicit integer
    AC_FC_MODULE_EXTENSION to compute the Fortran 90 module name extension
    AC_FC_MODULE_FLAG for the Fortran 90 module search path flag
    AC_FC_MODULE_OUTPUT_FLAG for the Fortran 90 module output directory flag
    AC_FC_PP_SRCEXT for preprocessed Fortran source files extensions
    AC_FC_PP_DEFINE for the Fortran preprocessor define flag

Update to 2.63:

GNU Autoconf NEWS - User visible changes.

* Major changes in Autoconf 2.63 (2008-09-09) [stable]
  Released by Eric Blake, based on git versions 2.62.*.

** AC_C_BIGENDIAN does not mistakenly report "universal" for some
   bigendian hosts, a regression introduced with universal binary
   support in 2.62.

** AC_PATH_X now includes /lib64 and /usr/lib64 in its list of default
   library directories.

** AC_USE_SYSTEM_EXTENSIONS no longer conflicts with an external
   AC_DEFINE([__EXTENSIONS__]).  This fixes a regression introduced in
   2.62 when using macros such as AC_AIX that were made obsolete in
   favor of the more portable AC_USE_SYSTEM_EXTENSIONS.

** AC_CHECK_TARGET_TOOLS is usable in the non-cross-compile case.

** Newly obsolete macros
   The following macro has been marked obsolete, since current porting
   targets can safely assume C89 semantics that signal handlers return
   void.  We have no current plans to remove the macro.


** The macros m4_map and m4_map_sep now ignore any list elements
   consisting of just empty quotes, and m4_map_sep now expands its
   separator.  This fixes a regression in 2.62 when these macros were
   first documented, for the sake of clients expecting the semantics
   that these macros had prior to that time.  The new macros m4_mapall
   and m4_mapall_sep, along with extra quoting of the separator, can
   be used to get the semantics that m4_map_sep had in 2.62.

** Clients of m4_expand, such as AS_HELP_STRING and AT_SETUP, can now
   handle properly quoted but otherwise unbalanced parentheses (for
   some macros, this fixes a regression in 2.62).

** Two new quadrigraphs have been introduced: @{:@ for (, and @:}@ for ),
   allowing the output of unbalanced parentheses in more contexts.

** The following m4sugar macros are new:
   m4_joinall  m4_mapall  m4_mapall_sep  m4_reverse  m4_set_add
   m4_set_add_all  m4_set_contains  m4_set_contents  m4_set_delete
   m4_set_difference  m4_set_dump  m4_set_empty  m4_set_foreach
   m4_set_intersection  m4_set_list  m4_set_listc  m4_set_remove
   m4_set_size  m4_set_union

** The following m4sugar macros now accept multiple arguments, as is the
   case with underlying m4:
   m4_defn  m4_popdef  m4_undefine

** The following m4sugar macros now guarantee linear scaling; they
   previously had linear scaling with m4 1.6 but quadratic scaling
   when using m4 1.4.x.  All macros built on top of these also gain
   the scaling improvements.
   m4_bmatch  m4_bpatsubsts  m4_case  m4_cond  m4_do  m4_dquote_elt
   m4_foreach  m4_join  m4_list_cmp  m4_map  m4_map_sep  m4_max
   m4_min  m4_shiftn

** AT_KEYWORDS once again performs expansion on its argument, such that
   AT_KEYWORDS([m4_if([$1], [], [default])]) no longer complains about
   the possibly unexpanded m4_if [regression introduced in 2.62].

** Config header templates `#undef UNDEFINED /* comment */' do not lead to
   nested comments any more; regression introduced in 2.62.

Update to 2.60:

* Major changes in Autoconf 2.60

  Released 2006-06-23, by Ralf Wildenhues.

** Autoconf no longer depends on whether m4wrap is FIFO (as Posix requires)
  or LIFO (as in GNU M4 1.4.x).  GNU M4 2.0 is expected to conform to Posix
  here, so m4wrap/m4_wrap users should no longer depend on LIFO behavior.

** Provide a way to turn off warnings about the changed directory variables.

* Major changes in Autoconf 2.59d

  Released 2006-06-05, by Ralf Wildenhues.

** GNU make now recommended for VPATH builds
  INSTALL now suggests VPATH builds (e.g., "sh ../srcdir/configure")
  only if you use GNU make.  In practice, other 'make' implementations
  have too many subtle incompatibilities in their support for VPATH.
  Many packages (including Autoconf itself) are portable to other
  'make' implementations, but some packages are not, and recommending
  GNU make keeps the installation instructions simpler.

** Even more safety checks for the new Directory variables:
  Warn about suspicious `${datarootdir}' found in config files output.

** AC_TRY_COMMAND, AC_TRY_EVAL, ac_config_guess, ac_config_sub, ac_configure
  These never-documented macros and variables have been marked with
  comments saying that they may be removed in a future release,
  because their use can lead to unintended code being executed.
  If you need functionality that only these macros or variables
  currently supply, please write

  Literal arguments to these are passed to m4_pattern_allow now.

  Passing 'ac_cv_prog_cc_stdc=no' to 'configure' now sets ac_cv_prog_cc_c99
  and ac_cv_prog_cc_c89 to 'no' as well, for backward compatibility with
  obsolete K&R tests in the Automake test suite.

  New macro.

  New macro.

  Now more robust with special characters in file names, or when
  multiple processes create the same directory at the same time.

** Obsolescent macros
  The documentation now says that the following macros are obsolescent:
  they test for problems that are so old that they are no longer of
  practical importance on current systems.

    AC_C_VOLATILE          AC_FUNC_STAT              AC_HEADER_TIME

  New programs need not use these macros.  We have no current plans to
  remove them.

** autoreconf
  For compatibility with future Libtool 2.0, autoreconf will invoke
  libtoolize with the option `--ltdl' now, if LT_CONFIG_LTDL_DIR is

* Major changes in Autoconf 2.59c

  Released 2006-04-12, by Ralf Wildenhues.

** The configure command now redirects standard input from /dev/null,
  to help avoid problems with subsidiary commands that might mistakenly
  read standard input.  AS_ORIGINAL_STDIN_FD points to the original
  standard input before this redirection, if you really want configure to
  read from standard input.

** Directory variables adjusted to recent changes in the GNU Coding Standards.
  The following directory variables are new:

    datarootdir   read-only architecture-independent data root [PREFIX/share]
    localedir     locale-specific message catalogs [DATAROOTDIR/locale]
    docdir        documentation root [DATAROOTDIR/doc/PACKAGE]
    htmldir       html documentation [DOCDIR]
    dvidir        dvi documentation [DOCDIR]
    pdfdir        pdf documentation [DOCDIR]
    psdir         ps documentation [DOCDIR]

  The following variables have new default values:

    datadir       read-only architecture-independent data [DATAROOTDIR]
    infodir       info documentation [DATAROOTDIR/info]
    mandir        man documentation [DATAROOTDIR/man]

  This means that if you use any of `@datadir@', `@infodir@', or
  `@mandir@' in a file, you will have to ensure `${datarootdir}' is
  defined in this file.  As a temporary measure, if any of those are
  found but no mention of `datarootdir', the substitutions will be
  replaced with values that do not contain `${datarootdir}', and a
  warning will be issued.

** @top_builddir@ is now a dir name: it is always nonempty and doesn't have
  a trailing slash.  Similar change will be made to ac_top_builddir in a
  future release; the old style value, which matches (../)*, is (and will
  continue to be) available as ac_top_build_prefix.

  New macro to check for support of 'typeof' syntax a la GNU C.

  New "once-only" variants of commonly-used macros, to make 'configure'
  smaller and faster in common cases.

  New macro to check for strtold with C99 semantics.

  New macro that lets builder disable assertions at 'configure'-time.

  Now checks for X11/Xlib.h and XrmInitialize (X proper) rather than
  X11/Intrinsic.h and XtMalloc (Xt).

  New macro that causes `configure' to display help strings for AC_ARG_ENABLE
  and AC_ARG_WITH arguments in one region, in the order defined.  The default
  behavior is to group options of each classes separately.

  No longer automatically arrange to declare the 'exit' function of C,
  when a C++ compiler is used.  Standard Autoconf macros no longer use
  'exit', so this is no longer an issue for them.  If you use C++, and
  want to call 'exit', you'll have to arrange for its declaration
  yourself.  But we now suggest you return from 'main' instead.

  New macros for ISO C99 support.  AC_PROG_CC_C89 and AC_PROG_CC_C99
  check for ANSI C89 and ISO C99 support respectively.

  Has been unobsoleted, and will check if the compiler supports ISO
  C99, falling back to ANSI C89 if not.  ac_cv_prog_cc_stdc is
  retained for backwards compatibility, assuming the value of
  ac_cv_prog_cc_c99 or ac_cv_prog_cc_c89 (whichever is valid, in
  that order).

  New macros for checking commonly-used members of struct dirent.

  The substituted value can now contain newlines.

  The substitution now occurs only when @variable@ is on a line by itself,
  optionally surrounded by spaces and tabs.  The whole line is replaced.

  New macros to check for long double, and whether it is wider than double.
  The old macro AC_C_TYPE_LONG_DOUBLE has been marked as obsolete;
  applications should switch to the new macro.

  New macros to check for C99 and POSIX types.

  New macro to enable extensions to Posix.

  New macro which is defined to the name of the first declared config header
  or undefined if no config headers have been declared yet.

  The macro correctly handles quadrigraphs now.

  These macros are new or published now.

  New macro for copyright notices in testsuite files.

  Object names added to these variables are now prefixed with `${LIBOBJDIR}',
  as in `${LIBOBJDIR}alloca.o'.  LIBOBJDIR is meant to be defined from
  `' in case the object files lie in a different directory.
  The LIBOBJDIR feature is experimental.

** autoreconf
  Supports --no-recursive now.

** New macros to support Erlang/OTP.
  New macros for configuring paths to Erlang tools and libraries:

  New macros for configuring installation of Erlang libraries:

** The manual now mentions Gnulib more prominently.

** New macros to support Objective C.

* Major changes in Autoconf 2.59b

  Released 2004-08-20, by Paul Eggert.

  New macro that computes the default alignment of a type.

  When cross-compiling, these macros will give a warning if the tool
  is not prefixed.  In the future, unprefixed cross tools will not
  be detected; please consult the info documentation for information
  about the reason of this change.

  New macros that detect programs whose name is prefixed with the
  target type, if the build type and target type are different.

  New trace macro that declares expected auxiliary files.

  New macro that tests for a grep program that accepts as a long a line
  as possible.

  These macros now require AC_PROG_GREP, and try EGREP="$GREP -E" and
  FGREP="$GREP -F" respectively if possible, or else run a path search for
  a program that accepts as long a line as possible.

  New macro that tests for a sed program that truncates as few characters
  as possible.

Update to 2.59:
* Major changes in Autoconf 2.59                       -*- outline -*-

  Released 2003-11-04, by Akim Demaille

** ac_abs_builddir etc.
  Absolute paths were actually relative in 2.58.

* Major changes in Autoconf 2.58

  Released 2003-11-04, by Akim Demaille

** core.*
  core.* files are no longer removed, as they may be valid user files.

** autoreconf and auxiliary directory
  Autoreconf creates the auxiliary directory if needed.  This is
  especially useful for initial "bootstrapping" of fresh CVS checkouts.

  Use this macro to declare the directory for local m4 macros for aclocal.

  No longer includes twice the same file in LIBOBJS if invoked
  multiple times.

  The directory for its first argument is automatically created.  For
  instance, with

      AC_CONFIG_COMMANDS([src/modules.hh], [...])

  $top_builddir/src/ is created if needed.

** Autotest and
  The optional file is always included in Autotest test suites.

** Warnings
  The warnings are always issued, including with cached runs.
  This became a significant problem since aclocal and automake can
  run autoconf behind the scene.

** autoheader warnings
  The warnings of autoheader can be turned off, using --warning.
  For instance, -Wno-obsolete disables the complaints about acconfig.h
  and other deprecated constructs.

** New macros

  Works again.

  Now checks that mktime is the inverse of localtime.

** Improve DJGPP portability
  The Autoconf tools and configure behave better under DJGPP.

** Present But Cannot Be Compiled
  New FAQ section dedicated to the mystic

    configure: WARNING: pi.h: present but cannot be compiled
    configure: WARNING: pi.h: check for missing prerequisite headers?
    configure: WARNING: pi.h: proceeding with the preprocessor's result

** Concurrent executions of autom4te
  autom4te now locks its internal files, which enables concurrent
  executions of autom4te, likely to happen if automake, autoconf,
  autoheader etc. are run simultaneously.

** Libtool
  Use of Libtool 1.5 and higher is encouraged.  Compatibility with
  Libtool pre-1.4 is not checked.

** Autotest
  Testsuites no longer rerun failed tests in verbose mode; instead,
  failures are logged while the test is run.

  In addition, expected failures can be marked as such.

Update to 2.56. Set MAINTAINER to me.
* Major changes in Autoconf 2.56                       -*- outline -*-

  Released November 15th, 2002.

One packaging problem fixed (config/install-sh was not executable).

* Major changes in Autoconf 2.55

  Released November 14th, 2002.

Release tips:

           Have your checked by autoscan ("autoscan").
             Try the warning options ("autoreconf -fv -Wall").

** Documentation

  More information on proper use.

- Writing Test Programs

  This sections explains how to write good test sources to use with
  AC_COMPILE_IFELSE etc.  It documents AC_LANG_PROGRAMS and so forth.


  Explains why Autoconf moves from AC_TRY_COMPILE etc. to

** autoreconf

- Is more robust to different Gettext installations.

- Produces messages (when --verbose) to be understood by Emacs'
  compile mode.

- Supports -W/--warnings.

- -m/--make
  Once the GNU Build System reinstalled, run `./config.status
  --recheck && ./config.status && make' if possible.

** autom4te

- Supports --cache, and --no-cache.

- ~/.autom4te.cfg makes it possible to disable the caching mechanism
  (autom4te.cache).  See `Customizing autom4te' in the documentation.

** config.status
  Supports --quiet.

** Obsolete options

  Support for the obsoleted options -m, --macrodir, -l, --localdir is
  dropped in favor of the safer --include/--prepend-include scheme.

** Macros

- New macros

- Obsoleted
  Obsoleted macros are kept for Autoconf backward compatibility, but
  should be avoided in  Running autoupdate is advised.


  We have to stop using the old compatibility scheme --that tried to
  avoid useless backslashes-- because Libtool 1.4.3 contains a

  AC_DEFINE([error_t], [int],
            [Define to a type to use for \`error_t' if it is not
             otherwise available.])

  We have to quote the single quotes and backslashes with \.  The old
  compatibility scheme saw that ` was backslashed, and therefore did
  not quote the single quote...  Failure.  Hence, Autoconf 2.54 is not
  compatible with Libtool.  Autoconf 2.55 is, but in some cases might
  produce more \ than wanted.

  Please, note that in the future the same problem will happen with
  AC_MSG_*: use `autoreconf -f -Wall'.

** Bug Fixes

- Portability of the Autoconf package to Solaris.

- Spurious warnings caused by config.status.
  This bug is benign, but painful: on some systems (typically
  FreeBSD), warnings such as:

     config.status: creating Makefile
     mv: Makefile: set owner/group (was: 1357/0): Operation not permitted

  could be issued.  This is fixed.

- Parallel Builds
  Simultaneous executions of config.status are possible again.

- Precious variables accumulation

  config.status could stack several copies of the precious variables

** Plans for 2.57

- ./configure <host>

  The compatibility hooks with the old scheme will be completely
  removed.  Please, advice/use `--build', `--host', and `--target'


  The tests will be stricter, please make sure your invocations are

- shell functions

  Shell functions will gradually be introduced, probably starting with
  Autotest.  If you know machines which are in use that you suspect
  *not* to support shell functions, please run the test suite of
  Autoconf 2.55 on it, and report the results to

- AC_MSG_*

  Special characters in AC_MSG_* need not be quoted.  Currently,
  Autoconf has heuristics to decide when a string is escaped, or has
  to be escaped.  This scheme is fragile, and will be removed; the
  only risk is uglified messages.  Please, run `autoreconf -f -Wall'
  to find occurrences that will be affected.
