Re: Next release of GNU make coming soon

I've been thinking about updating the autotools prerequisites in the GNU
make build system to newer versions; that would include autoconf,
automake, and gettext.

I'm most interested in gettext as the version we're using now (0.18.4)
has some old/deprecated autoconf m4 macros that would be nice to avoid.

If there are version restrictions on any of the platforms (that is, it's
tricky to get newer versions of some of these tools) where people are
performing from-Git builds as opposed to building distribution source
packages (where the versions of these tools shouldn't be an issue),
please let me know.

In Solaris it can sometimes be painful to get newer versions of auto-tools.  At a minimum, please double-check OpenCSW to make sure the version you switch to is at least equal to if not lower than the latest version they have building for sparc solaris.
