[Fwd: Re: [PATCH] update to OS X portion of PORTING doc]

Oops, sorry about the typos.

Possibly a clarification is in order that autoconf 2.53 is needed to
build neon, and you need to get it through fink rather than through
~pier/macosx. Adding a "+" to the version numbers for texinfo and
automake I'm sure wouldn't hurt.

I don't trust the gnu version of autoconf out of the box because if you
run "make check" (at least for the version I tried it with) it reported
a bazillion failures. If you know for certain there's no difference
between the gnu version and the darwin version that's another story, I
certainly didn't compare them.

   OK. I still think it's preferable to tell people to get the source
from Darwin CVS. There's a typo in the URL. Also, Pier only has
autoconf 2.52, not 2.53, though the GNU version builds and runs out of
the box just fine. Jaguar will, I'm told, ship with 2.52. :-/

   Automake 1.6.1 also works fine, for what that's worth. Don't know if
that will ship with Jaguar. I think texinfo 4.2 will be there.
