Based on this, the only macros I would consider worth keeping in gnome-common are:


I think we should try to get this one in the autoconf distribution.
"Turn on the best-practices set of warnings for the current compiler"


I'm not sure this is really useful, I would just let modules do their
own thing. For example metacity has --enable-verbose and so forth.

But if it is useful, again it belongs in autoconf.

The common script could probably do with a bit of a cleanup. The main one is to allow modules to select an autoconf version other than automake-1.4. While you might consider this unnecessary if we standardise on a single automake version, it will help during

I agree you should able to select your autoconf/automake version.
(Not that it does us any good until someone fixes scrollkeeper/etc. rules to pass distcheck with new automake)
according to the docs of automake-1.7.2, you can customise the check used to check for files not removed by "make uninstall". Maybe this should be used to handle scrollkeeper? I have some patches pending to help simplify gtk-doc build infrastructure which should help here too.
