BINGO!! that's the point!! "make" does run *without* a problem,
and it is *indeed* supposed to update the stamp-file. *After*
the "make"-call, I try to call "make dist", and that one *will*
call autoheader AS-IF stamp-h was outdated. Weird, isn't it :-/

What's more, as the stamp-file is now updated, a second call
will succeed. Going through the whole round again, and the
problem is back again. I did even create a very small test
lib-project to minimize interference from rules of my project,
and know what - same thing there. I am still inconclusive
what triggers this behaviour.

(yep, later autotool'ed stuff can do it, IFF everything is setup right,
 which is not in some off-home places that I happen to work too ;-} ...).

almost 2000km from you, in Berlin, it's 28 celsius, damn, next car
has aircon (i'm still with that old student's car...) but the
satellite pics do look like rain in the next hours...
anyway, another good reason to check out the sun and do some
minor updates to some placess... ;-)     (address@hidden)
