Subject [jira] Created: (QPID-1740) ECHO variable is undocumented
Date Tue, 17 Mar 2009 07:46:50 GMT
ECHO variable is undocumented

                 Key: QPID-1740
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-1740
             Project: Qpid
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: C++ Broker
    Affects Versions: M5
         Environment: Arch Linux, GNU Autoconf 2.63, GNU Automake 1.10, GNU Libtool 2.2.6a
            Reporter: Jan Sarenik
            Priority: Trivial
             Fix For: M5
         Attachments: 0001-Deletion-of-undocumented-ECHO.patch

In newer version of Libtool, ECHO variable is not set in
generated Makefiles, merely the lt_ECHO is. The ECHO
variable has never been documented nor meant to be used that
way without having independent M4 echo test in-code.

Available solutions:

  1. Start generating snapshots that will
     contain "./configure" & friends pre-generated
     by your preferred version of GNU Autotools
     which includes the undocumented ECHO variable
     in generated Makefiles.

  2. Start using CMake after 0.5 release.

  3. Apply the patch in attachment to make the
     code ready for latest versions of Autotools.

AFAIK code rebase to CMake is on its way, but IMHO the
change of build system does not prevent us from making
errors so please read the docs.
