autoreconf - Update generated configuration files

AUTORECONF(1) User Commands AUTORECONF(1)

NAME

autoreconf - Update generated configuration files

SYNOPSIS

autoreconf [ OPTION] ... [TEMPLATE-FILE]

DESCRIPTION

Run `autoconf' (and `autoheader', `aclocal' and `automake', where appropriate) repeatedly to remake the Autoconf `configure' scripts and configuration header templates in the directory tree rooted at the current directory. By default, it only remakes those files that are older than their predecessors. If you install a new version of Autoconf, running `autoreconf' remakes all of the files by giving it the `--force' option.

Operation modes:

-h, --help
print this help, then exit
-V, --version
print version number, then exit
-v, --verbose
verbosely report processing
-d, --debug
don't remove temporary files
-f, --force
consider every files are obsolete
-i, --install
copy missing auxiliary files
-s, --symlink
instead of copying, install symbolic links
The option `--install' is similar to the option `--add-missing' in other tools.

Library directories:

-A, --autoconf-dir=ACDIR
Autoconf's macro files location (rarely needed)
-l, --localdir=DIR
location of `aclocal.m4' and `acconfig.h'
-M, --m4dir=M4DIR
this package's Autoconf extensions
Unless specified, heuristics try to compute `M4DIR' from the `Makefile.am', or defaults to `m4' if it exists.

The following options are passed to `automake':

--cygnus
assume program is part of Cygnus-style tree
--foreign
set strictness to foreign
--gnits
set strictness to gnits
--gnu
set strictness to gnu
--include-deps
include generated dependencies in Makefile.in
The environment variables AUTOCONF, AUTOHEADER, AUTOMAKE, and ACLOCAL are honored.
