Solaris Package Archive
What is it
GNU autoconf 2.13 is an extensible package of m4 macros that produce shell
scripts to automatically configure software source code packages.
These scripts can adapt the packages to many kinds of UNIX-like
systems without manual user intervention.
autoconf creates a
configuration script for a package from a template file that lists the
operating system features that the package can use, in the form of m4
Producing configuration scripts using
autoconf requires GNU m4. You
must install GNU m4 (1.3 or later) before configuring
autoconf, so that
autoconf's configure script
can find it. The configuration scripts produced by
autoconf are self-contained,
so their users do not need to have
autoconf (or GNU m4).
