Update of sr #110283 (project autoconf):

                  Status:          Ready For Test => Done                   
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #5:

The patch I posted here earlier was necessary but not sufficient to fix all
the spurious testsuite failures due to _AST_FEATURES.  I have now pushed a
complete fix.

As of revision 2cb0ab81, I get a completely successful testsuite on weerd with
all three of these $PATH settings:

 - /usr/gnu/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin
 - /usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin
 - /usr/xpg4/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/sbin

In the latter two cases I used "gmake check" instead of "make check" because
of #110289 -- further discussion of that problem should happen in that

With /usr/xpg4/bin first in the path, I needed to set
ACCEPT_INFERIOR_RM_PROGRAM=yes in the environment before running 'configure',
but having done that, there were no additional problems.  Any change to the
behavior of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE needs to happen in automake first, and the
workaround of setting this environment variable is suggested in the error
message that prints when 'rm -f' with no arguments exits unsuccessfully, so I
don't think we need to make any additional changes on our side, yet.
