[PATCH] little cross-compile fix

From: Nix
Subject: [PATCH] little cross-compile fix
Date: 30 Jul 2001 08:29:14 +0100
User-agent: Gnus/5.0808 (Gnus v5.8.8) XEmacs/21.4 (Artificial Intelligence (candidate 3))

Make endeavours to support cross-compilation, but it doesn't because of
an infelicity in autoconf.  This fixes that; well, kludges around it in
true autoconf style...

2001-07-30  Nix  <address@hidden>

        * acinclude.m4 (NIX_FUNC_SETVBUF_REVERSED): Define a
        FUNC_SETVBUF_REVERSED with (negative) results when
        * configure.in: Call it.
