Re: svn copy conflicts with autotools ?

Hi all,

We had the same problems, so for the (re)bootstrapping of our project
we now use our own 'bootstrap' script (which is included in both CVS
and the source package):

echo "---removing generated files---"
# products from ./configure and make
if test -f Makefile ; then
# touch all automatically generated targets that we do not want to 
   touch aclocal.m4
   touch configure
   touch Makefile.in
   touch config.status
   touch Makefile
# make maintainer-clean
   make -k maintainer-clean
# products from autoreconf
rm -Rf autom4te.cache
rm -f Makefile.in aclocal.m4 compile config.guess config.sub configure \
       config.h.in depcomp install-sh ltmain.sh missing py-compile ylwrap
if test "$1" != "clean" ; then
   # bootstrap
   echo "---autoreconf---"
   autoreconf -v -i -f
Feel free to use this as a template for your own project(s).
Best regards,
Sander Niemeijer
