New propossed GnomeGoal: Modernize your autotools configuration


I just made a blog post [1] and thought that maybe this can be useful
to all because autotools is the most common system [2] to build
programs in GNOME.
The idea is that remove deprecated macros from our files
and use the new syntax will do our build system more legible and

Autotools comes with a tool that do the work for us: simply run
> autoupdate
in you source tree and you have a new updated (Check the
result for possibles errors)

You can see more tips and links to the documentation in the GnomeGoal
page: [3], for example:

- Use all the parameters of AC_INIT(), (for the fifth parameter you
need autoconf >= 2.63.2):
- Use LT_INIT() syntax for libtool (needs libtool >= 2.2.0)
- Use AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE() new syntax: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([1.10 dist-bzip2])

Any improvement/suggestion/comment welcomed
