You want autoconf -f then.

|     ext/mysql, ext/session).  Apparently, autoconf/autom4te does

You know, you are typically the kind of people who has valid grieves
against Autoconf, but using things that were never documented.
esyscmd is definitely excluded from our framework.  But you kept
developping your Autoconf instead of coming and deciding for a

How do I know?  Did you send a bug report?  Do you have a test case?

And BTW, do PHP's extensions finally produce valid HTML code?
