I've tried it now.  I didn't have to modify any of the configure scripts
at all.

I found a bug in autoreconf (patch sent to autoconf-patches), and the
HP-UX build fails because GCC doesn't understand "+b" (which is fixed by
the patch I mentioned in an earlier post in this thread).

Otherwise everything seems much as before, except that some cross-builds
give a warning when they can't find a suitably crossed fortran compiler
and find a native one instead.

The warning is rather daft because I don't have any fortran code in
the project so I've no interest in what fortran compilers it can
or can't find.  I guess it's libtool that's resulting in the configure
probe for a fortran compiler, which is a long standing issue I believe.
If that is meant to be fixed, something is going wrong.

Anyway, here's the log:

Anyway, I'll leave it bootstrapping with CVS autoconf and libtool for
now, and update the versions from CVS periodically.
