Re: How to rebuild configure

How do I build configure in HEAD now?  autoconf-2.59 + this patch?


That patch isn't required; I didn't add the AC_PRESERVE_HELP_ORDER macro to our configure.in file. Plain autoconf 2.59 will work, even if the configure --help output is distorted. If anyone feels strongly about preserving the display order, then I'd be fine with committing the AC_PRESERVE_HELP_ORDER invocation and requiring the patch.

Of course I got the quoting wrong that time. This works for both cases.
Sent the old diff twice, sheesh. This time for sure.
