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)

There was a new update of the autoconf cvs release in Debian an I still have the "missing icons" problem:
Some icons in the toolbars are missing

This happens only when built with this particular version of autoconf (2.59.cvs.2006.05.25) tree build with autoconf 2.59a is safe.

Maybe the fix employed has some side effects?

Best regards
