I've updated my sid version f Debian and autoconf has been updated.

With this version of autoconf, configure has a syntax error:

I have just removed the dash in CVS.

And it is fine this way.
What I cannot understand is why a previous version of autoconf works.

I am convinced AC_MSG_RESULT() macro definition has changed. It used to work due to a lucky coincidence. m4 macros are just that, the generator does not do much syntax checking.

There is another problem (I replied but with the wrong identity : see remark later)

When I build it with the new version of autoconf (in Debian sid, it is an CVS version), some icons are missing in the toolbars. If I rebuild it (same source tree) with the previous version of autoconf, I've not this problem)

Remarks about the list :
- If I use the wrong identity, the message is "waitong for approval". It is sometimes annoyiong but seems to be the list policy.
- Each time I send a message on this list, I receive a mail from
Mail Administrator <Postmaster web01-nyc clicvu com> saying that mail from domain are not accepted. It is not directly related to you but probably to somebody there sunbscibed. I've mailed to complain without any effect. Do you know if there is a way to avoid that ?
