Or is supposed to?  Below is an xtrace of Gary's "bootstrap" script that
ultimately arrives at:  /usr/bin/autoreconf --install
but that invocation chokes.  I'll see what I can do to get autoreconf to
run autoheader.


You can always get a function call trace from any of my (recent) shell scripts like this:

  debug_cmd='eval echo "${FUNCNAME[0]} $*" >&2' bash bootstrap

Autoreconf doesn't always run libtoolize (among others) at the correct time, so the bootstrap invocation of autoreconf is a little tricky... You also need to be careful AUTOHEADER is not set in the environment (in the calling shell or your bootstrap.conf, for example).

What revision of bootstrap are you running? (./bootstrap --version) There might be a newer one in libtool's git master branch on savannah, in case you have an old one without recent fixes in it:


Do you have a repo or tarball of your source package I can look at to try and reproduce?
