NAME

autoreconf - Update generated configuration files  

SYNOPSIS

autoreconf [OPTION] ... [CONFIGURE-AC or DIRECTORY] ...  

DESCRIPTION

Run `autoconf' (and `autoheader', `aclocal', `automake', `autopoint' (formerly `gettextize'), and `libtoolize' where appropriate) repeatedly to remake the GNU Build System files in the DIRECTORIES or the directory trees driven by CONFIGURE-AC (defaulting to `.').

By default, it only remakes those files that are older than their predecessors. If you install new versions of the GNU Build System, running `autoreconf' remakes all of the files by giving it the `--force' option.  

Operation modes:

-h, --help
print this help, then exit
-V, --version
print version number, then exit
-v, --verbose
verbosely report processing
-d, --debug
don't remove temporary files
-f, --force
consider all files obsolete
-i, --install
copy missing auxiliary files
-s, --symlink
with -i, install symbolic links instead of copies
-m, --make
when applicable, re-run ./configure && make
-W, --warnings=CATEGORY
report the warnings falling in CATEGORY [syntax]
 

Warning categories include:

`cross'
cross compilation issues
`gnu'
GNU coding standards (default in gnu and gnits modes)
`obsolete'
obsolete features or constructions
`override'
user redefinitions of Automake rules or variables
`portability'
portability issues
`syntax'
dubious syntactic constructs (default)
`unsupported'
unsupported or incomplete features (default)
`all'
all the warnings
`no-CATEGORY'
turn off warnings in CATEGORY
`none'
turn off all the warnings
`error'
treat warnings as errors

The environment variable `WARNINGS' is honored. Some subtools might support other warning types, using `all' is encouraged.  

Library directories:

-B, --prepend-include=DIR
prepend directory DIR to search path
-I, --include=DIR
append directory DIR to search path

The environment variables AUTOCONF, AUTOHEADER, AUTOMAKE, ACLOCAL, AUTOPOINT, LIBTOOLIZE are honored.

The Debian project regards the full documentation for autoreconf to be non-free, so it is not included in Debian. Nevertheless, the non-free distribution that accompanies Debian includes the manual in its autoconf-doc package. Otherwise, you may be able to access the Autoconf manual online.
