Bug with AutoConfig.sh

Timothy Baldridge
Maybe I'm not doing something right here, but there is a rather simple
bug in the Autoconfig.sh script. It currently checks for the version
numbers in aclocal and libtool. However it only accepts a certain
value, instead of that version and all newer versions. Is there a
reason for this? Or is this a bug?

I believe you're talking about AutoRegen.sh? In the LLVM autoconf
directory?

(and autoconf)

No, its entirely intentional to ensure that we don't end up with errors
in our configure script. Testing is done for exactly one version of the
auto* tools. If someone were to run AutoRegen.sh from an older (or
newer) version, it could (and has) broken our configure script.  We just
updated to the latest a few weeks ago (first update in 2 years).

I take it you don't have the right versions. I'll commit the changes to
configure and configure.ac for you.  Should be done by the time you get
this.
